In this year’s report cards, Global Finance rates the performance of 89 central bank governors. Global Finance assessed governors on a scale ranging from A (for head of the class) to F (for outright failure), where Koba Gvenetadze, president of National Bank of Georgia received A- and has been listed among 16 best governors.
Global Finance has been grading central bankers for 24 years on how well they do their jobs. The ratings are based on inflation control, economic growth, currency stability and interest-rate management, among other criteria. The determination of central bankers to protect their independence in the face of political pressure and their skills in supervising financial institutions are also taken into account.
