ABOUT US

The International Banking Research Network (IBRN) brings together central bank researchers from around the world to analyze issues pertaining to global banks. It was established in 2012 by Austrian, German, U.S., and U.K. researchers who saw a need for joint analysis of key questions, such as the role of cross-border banking in the transmission of financial shocks. The group has now expanded to include economists and analysts from a broad group of central banks, as well as the Bank for International Settlements and the International Monetary Fund.
