The Central Banker Report Cards has been published annually by Global Finance since 1994, grading the central bank governors of 96 key countries, territories, and districts including the European Union (EU), the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank, the Bank of Central African States, and the Central Bank of West African States.

Grades are based on an “A” to “F” scale for success in areas, including inflation control, economic growth goals, currency stability, and interest rate management.

An “A” grade represents an excellent performance while an “F” stands for outright failure.

“As fears of a global recession take hold around the world, the spotlight is on central bankers to enact policies that help avert this scenario,” said Global Finance founder and editorial director Joseph Giarraputo in a statement.

“Global Finance’s annual Central Banker Report Cards analyze and rate the financial policy leaders that are making the best decision and those that need to improve.”

The Central Banker who earned an “A+” grade in the Global Finance Central Banker Report Cards 2022 is Asgeir Jonsson, governor of the central bank of Iceland.
