Promoting global monetary and financial stability

Chapter 1 of the BIS's Annual Report 2022/23

Our mission, values and activities

Our mission is to support central banks' pursuit of monetary and financial stability through international cooperation, and to act as a bank for central banks.

In fulfilling this mission, we strive to help our member central banks navigate the opportunities and challenges they face, and to provide insights and services to support their work.

Innovation BIS 2025

Innovation BIS 2025 is the ambitious strategy we launched in financial year 2019/20. The strategy helps us to meet the needs of our central bank stakeholders in these times of rapid economic and technological change. It seeks to shape continuous innovation on the analytical and business fronts.

We are now four years into Innovation BIS 2025, and substantial progress has been made. In 2022/23, we marked the successful delivery of approximately 80% of the strategy. As we enter the final stretch of Innovation BIS 2025, we are sustaining our momentum to complete the agenda and embedding the changes brought through this ambitious development programme.
