Rwanda – Annual Financial Stability Report June 2015 - June 2016

Feb 09, 2017 | National Bank of Rwanda | National Bank of Rwanda

Fostering financial stability is one of the main mandates of the National Bank of Rwanda. The bank achieves this objective through regularly monitoring performance of the financial systems (i.e. banking system, insurance sector, the pension, the micro-finance institutions and the payment systems) and adopting appropriate policy measures. Financial Stability Reports (FSR) are among the key financial sector policy guiding analytical tools. They synthesize recent developments in Rwanda’s financial system, analyse both exogenous and endogenous risks to the sector, assess resilience of the sector to adverse shocks, and unveil key constraints to development of the financial sector. The current report contains an assessment of the stability of the financial systems using economic and financial data up to the end of June 2016.
