OMFIF-State Street central banks and data challenges report launch

Live: Thursday 27 April 13:30 (London)

The rapid pace of technological change is matched by the ever-evolving risks to financial stability and the global economy, as shown by the Covid-19 pandemic, the acceleration of climate change and the volatility of digital financial assets. It is within this environment that central banks need to harness technology to capture, handle, integrate and use new data effectively. OMFIF and State Street have produced a solution-driven report to better understand the challenges and opportunities facing central banks in the digital age.

This launch event presents the key findings of the report and assesses how the benefits to the global economy and financial system from central banks modernising their approach to data could be substantial. It offers insights into the importance of monetary policy decision-making, financial stability and reserve management that central banks must consider for data categorisation integration and management. It looks at the regulatory challenges around environmental, social and governance data and the operating models, technological platforms and integrated data strategies that should be considered.
