Working on trust
DNB seeks to safeguard financial stability and thus contributes to sustainable prosperity in the Netherlands.
As an independent central bank, supervisory authority and resolution authority, DNB works in tandem with its European partners to achieve:
- price stability and a balanced macroeconomic development in Europe;
- a shock-resilient financial system and a secure, reliable and efficient payment system; and
- strong and sound financial institutions that meet their obligations and commitments and can be orderly resolved if needed.
By issuing independent economic advice, DNB strengthens policies aimed at its primary targets.
To perform its duties adequately, DNB needs cutting-edge knowledge and information. Scientific research performed at DNB is therefore focussed on our core duties.
Researchers are also responsible for economic forecasts. DNB likes to share its knowledge. It does so through seminars, conferences, in-house publications and contributions to scientific journals.
