The aim of the Official Monetary and Financial Institutions Forum is to promote a dialogue on issues of particular interest for central banks and sovereign funds, and the community that follows them within the financial markets and beyond. We highlight the questions of asset management, financial supervision and regulation, and the structure of the financial industry worldwide. Additional topics are individual countries’ and regions’ exchange rate regimes; changing patterns of international payments imbalances; and the semi-permanent tension between retail and investment banking. We bring a specialised but also a creative eye to scanning these matters. We hope we can impart knowledge in a way that will provoke thought, but will also show adequate awareness of underlying nuances and complexities. In a world where financial and capitalistic power is moving, in fits and starts, from west to east, we aspire (albeit from
an Anglo-Saxon base) to be global.
