Head of Financial System Policy Analysis Toby Fiennes accepted the award on behalf of the Reserve Bank at a ceremony in London overnight.

Mr Fiennes said it was a real honour for the Dashboard to be recognised internationally. The award is a deserved tribute to the huge effort by many people in the Reserve Bank and the sector at large.

“The Reserve Bank has taken a lead among central banks by developing the Dashboard as a way to make it easy for investors and analysts to understand the financial position of banks,” Mr Fiennes said. “This is an important aspect of ensuring a sound financial system. Interest in the dashboard has been immense.”
