Statement of relationship management approach

The Reserve Bank’s Relationship Charter is a step towards achieving the best “regulator-regulated” relationships possible.

The Charter was established for working effectively with banks and will be discussed with insurers and non-bank deposit takers.

The Charter commits the Reserve Bank and the financial sector to a mutual understanding of appropriate conduct and culture and is underpinned by the principle of ‘te hunga tiaki’ – the combined stewardship of an efficient system for the benefit of all.
