Reserve Bank announces key appointment



The Reserve Bank of Australia has named Bradley Jones as assistant governor of the financial system group to oversee the RBA’s work on financial system stability and its role in payments system oversight and regulation.

Bradley took on the role after it became vacant following the appointment of Michele Bullock to deputy governor.

Jones joined the central bank in 2018 as head of international department and was most recently head of economic analysis department. Prior to joining the Reserve Bank, Jones spent five years at the International Monetary Fund in Washington, D.C., where he served in the Monetary and Capital Markets Department and was responsible for research and leading missions in the areas of financial stability and central bank asset and liability management. Before that, he held senior macroeconomic research and global macro trading responsibilities in Deutsche Bank’s global markets business in London and Hong Kong over a period of around nine years.

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