List of Central Banks With Countries Name

A central bank, Reserve Bank, or Monetary Authority is an entity that manages the state’s currency, money supply, and interest rates. Nowhere you can see a list of central banks from all over the world.

The Central Bank also generally monitored commercial banking systems of their respective countries.

The primary function of a central bank is money supply, interest rates, setting reserve requirement, and banking sector acting as a last resort for the lender during the time of bank insolvency or financial crisis.

The Central Bank generally also has supervisory powers intended to prevent, bank runs and commercial banks and other financial institutions engage in reckless or fraudulent behaviour to minimize the risk.

In most developed countries, central banks are designed to be independent of institutional political intervention.

Under the supervision of central banks, there is a wide range of responsibilities that monetary policy employs to implement specific goals such as currency stability, low inflation and full employment.

Central banks also typically regulate the currency issue, function as the bank of the government, regulate the credit system, oversee commercial banks, manage the currency reserves and act as a lender of last resort.

The central bank has described it as the “lender of last resort” which means that commercial banks are responsible for providing their economy with funds when they cannot cover a supply shortage.

In other words, failing the central bank prevents the banking system of the country.

However, the primary goal of central banks is to provide their countries with inflation in prices by controlling currencies.
