Bank of Israel

More Information

The Bank of Israel was founded on August 24, 1954, when the Knesset passed the Bank of Israel Act, which ceded the currency issuing and regulatory functions of the Ministry of Finance to the newly formed Bank. Control over foreign currency exchange was not given to the bank until 1978. The Bank was made completely independent in 1985 and since 1992, the Bank manages its monetary policy so as to meet the inflation target set by the Israeli government - which is today a range of between 1 and 3 percent per annum, considered as price stability. Additionally, the Bank manages the Foreign Exchange Reserves.

Governor: Karnit Flug
