Dialogue on World Finance and Economic Policy
The Official Monetary and Financial Institutions Forum is an independent think tank for central banking, economic policy and public investment – a non-lobbying network for best practice in worldwide public-private sector exchanges.
At its heart are Global Public Investors – central banks, sovereign funds and public pension funds – with investable assets of $33.8tn, equivalent to 45% of world GDP.
With offices in both London and Singapore, OMFIF focuses on global policy and investment themes – particularly in asset management, capital markets and financial supervision/regulation – relating to central banks, sovereign funds, pension funds, regulators and treasuries.
OMFIF promotes higher standards, performance-enhancing exchanges between public and private sectors and a better understanding of the world economy, in an atmosphere of mutual trust.
Membership offers insight through two complementary channels – Analysis and Meeting – where members play a prominent role in shaping the agenda. OMFIF Analysis includes research and commentary. Contributors include in-house experts, Advisory Board members, and representatives of member institutions and academic and official bodies. OMFIF Meetings take place within central banks and other official institutions are held under OMFIF Rules.
The Advisory Board, made up of economic and political specialists from many backgrounds, actively participates in OMFIF's activities, including speaking and writing engagements. Chairman of the Advisory Board is Lord (Meghnad) Desai, emeritus professor at the London School of Economics and Political Science.
