The South African Reserve Bank (SARB) is the central bank of the Republic of South Africa. Established in 1921, its primary mandate is to protect the value of the South African currency and ensure price stability within the country. The SARB is responsible for formulating and implementing monetary policy, issuing and managing the South African currency (the Rand), and regulating the country’s banking and financial system. As an independent institution, the SARB operates autonomously from the government to maintain its credibility and effectiveness. It plays a crucial role in safeguarding the stability and integrity of the South African financial system, promoting sustainable economic growth, and fostering financial inclusion. The South African Reserve Bank is committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of the public by conducting its operations with transparency, accountability, and a focus on the long-term welfare of the country.
