The Official Monetary and Financial Institutions Forum (OMFIF) is expanding its research activities and widening capabilities in international finance with the appointment of five new members to its Advisory Board.

These include Hans Eichel, German Finance Minister in 1999-2005, Marek Belka, President of  National Bank of Poland in 2010-16, and Miroslav Singer, Governor of the Czech National Bank in 2010-16.

Elliot Hentov, head of policy and research in the Official Institutions Group at State Street Global Advisors, and Olivier Rousseau, member of the executive board of the Fonds de réserve pour les retraits, have also joined the Advisory Board.

To help manage expansion, OMFIF has appointed Danae Kyriakopoulou as Head of Research.
