Bradley Jones to become assistant RBA governor

Dr Bradley Jones has been promoted to the position of assistant governor, Financial System Group at the Reserve Bank of Australia.

This follows a competitive search selection for internal and external candidates for this role, which became vacant following the appointment of Michele Bullock to deputy Governor.

Jones joined the RBA in 2018 as head of international department and most recently was head of economic analysis department. Before joining the RBA, he worked at the International Monetary Fund in Washington D.C. for five years. There he served in the monetary and capital markets department where he was responsible for research and leading missions in the areas of financial stability and central bank asset and liability management.

Prior to this, he held senior macroeconomic research and global macro trading responsibilities over a period of around nine years in Deutsche Bank's global markets business in London and Hong Kong.

Jones holds a PhD in finance from Macquarie University and served for five years as a fellow at the University of Cambridge Judge Business School. He has published extensively on a wide range of topics related to financial stability, monetary policy and international financial markets. He is a graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors course and a signatory to the Banking and Finance Oath.

In his new position, Jones will oversee the RBA’s work on financial system stability and its role in payments system oversight and regulation.
