Our work

The CGFS has a mandate to identify and assess potential sources of stress in the global financial system, to further the understanding of the structural underpinnings of financial systems, and to promote improvements to the functioning and stability of these systems.

It fulfils this mandate by way of regular discussions among CGFS members, working groups involving central bank staff, and workshops with academics and market participants. The CGFS also oversees the collection of the BIS international banking and financial statistics.
