The Reserve Bank has recently extended its efforts to monitor and analyse financial stability issues. This article discusses the establishment of the Macro-Financial Stability (MFS) section in the Reserve Bank and some of the potential financial instability issues New Zealand faces. The role of macroprudential analysis is also discussed, along with a limited number of macroprudential indicators for illustrative purposes.
