The history of Central Banking

Central Banking Publications is a financial publisher specialising in public policy and financial markets, with an emphasis on central banks, international financial institutions and financial market infrastructure and regulation.

Central Banking was founded in 1990 by Robert Pringle, a former editor of The Banker and executive director of the Group of Thirty, who was the first editor of Central Banking Journal and who retains strong links with the brand as chair of the editorial advisory board.

Central Banking was acquired by Incisive Media in 2007 and became part of Infopro Digital following its acquisition of Incisive in April 2017. Central Banking continues to operate, as it always has done, with full editorial independence and the support of the central banking community, for which it is very grateful.
