BIS Innovation Hub Centre - London

In 2021, the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) and the Bank of England have launched the BIS Innovation Hub Centre in London, the fourth Innovation Hub Centre to be opened in the past two years.

The BIS, together with its partners, is taking a leading role in coordinating the work of central banks on technological innovation in the financial sector to pave the way for the future of central banking. This new Centre in London reflects the Bank of England's critical role as an innovator in responding to the challenges and opportunities of the digital world while safeguarding financial stability.

Agustín Carstens, General Manager of the BIS

As a central bank, we recognise the importance of innovation for the global financial system and look to support its safe deployment wherever possible. This requires collaboration between public authorities in all jurisdictions, and the BIS Innovation Hub is an important global initiative for achieving this.

Andrew Bailey, Governor of the Bank of England
