De Nederlandsche Bank


De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB) is a public limited company  whose day-to-day policy rests with the Governing Board. Being an NV, DNB has a Supervisory Board. In addition, there is an advisory body called the Bank Council (Bankraad).

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.
