G20 Leaders endorse the Financial Stability Board’s Charter
September 26, 2009:
The G20 Leaders at Pittsburgh Summit endorsed the Charter formally establishing
the Financial Stability Board (FSB).
In April 2009 G20 Leaders agreed that the former Financial Stability Forum (established in
1999) be re-launched as the FSB, with a broadened mandate to promote financial stability,
expanded membership, stronger institutional basis and enhanced capacity.
The re-launched FSB began work to address its mandate immediately following the Summit, on the basis of
the G20 Leaders’ April agreement. The Charter endorsed by G20 Leaders in
Pittsburgh formally establishes the FSB and sets out its objectives, mandate, membership
and organisational processes.
The FSB brings together national authorities responsible for financial stability in significant
international financial centres, international financial institutions, sector-specific international
groupings of regulators and supervisors, and committees of central bank experts.
The FSB is chaired by Mario Draghi, Governor of the Bank of Italy. Its Secretariat is located
in Basel, Switzerland, and hosted by the Bank for International Settlements.
