Board of Directors

The Reserve Bank of New Zealand Act 1989 and the Board Charter (PDF 280KB) set out the responsibilities of the Reserve Bank Board and its members.

The primary function of the Board is to review the performance of the Governor and the Bank. The Board holds regular meetings at which it receives extensive briefings on the Bank’s activities, decisions and policies. At these meetings the Board also provides advice to the Governor.

The Board, through an Audit Committee, reviews the Bank’s financial statements. Each year the Board writes an assessment of the Bank’s and the Governor’s performance, which is provided as advice to the Minister of Finance and made public later in the Bank’s Annual Report.
