Global Finance magazine ranks Bank of Israel governor sixth on prestigious list of world's top bank chancellors

Bank of Israel Governor Stanley Fischer is yet again among the world's leading bank chancellors.

 

An annual Global Finance magazine ranking, published over the weekend, ranked Fischer in sixth place.

 

The magazine ranked Dr. Zeti Akhtar Aziz, governor of Bank Negara Malaysia, as the world's top chancellor for the third year running. Dr. Zeti was "one of the six heads of central bank scoring an 'A' in the Central Banker Report Card," the magazine said.

Other leading bankers given an "A" included Amando Tetangco Jr. of the Philippines, Taiwan's Fai-Nan

Perng, Reserve Bank of Australia Governor Glenn Stevens, Canada's Mark Carney and Fischer.

 

The United States Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke improved his score to "B" from "C" last year.

 

The Central Banker Report Card has been published annually by Global Finance since 1994.

 

It grades Central Bank governors from 50 key countries on an "A" to "F" scale for "Success in areas such as inflation control, economic growth goals, currency stability and interest rate management."

 

"A" represents an excellent performance down through "F" for outright failure. Subjective criteria also apply.
