Reserve Bank of New Zealand Links

The Reserve Bank of New Zealand is New Zealand’s central bank. It was established in 1934, and although not a government department, has been wholly owned by the government of New Zealand since 1936. Like most central banks, the Reserve Bank is primarily a policy organisation, and has three main functions:

  1. operating monetary policy to maintain price stability;
  2. promoting the maintenance of a sound and efficient financial system; and
  3. meeting the currency needs of the public.

These functions are specified in the Reserve Bank Act 1989, which also gives the Reserve Bank statutory independence to carry them out. Aspects have since been refined by a variety of amendment acts.

To fulfil these functions, the Bank carries out a wide range of tasks, from operating monetary policy to monitoring and supervising the health of the financial system, maintaining foreign reserves, operating in the financial markets if necessary, and issuing currency as required. The Bank has the sole right to produce currency in New Zealand.
