Financial Stability Report
The BOJ Financial Stability Report provides an assessment of the main financial developments, trends and vulnerabilities influencing the stability of Jamaica?s financial system during the calendar year. The maintenance of financial stability by the BOJ primarily concerns the safeguard of conditions which ensures the proper and efficient functioning of the financial system and consequently, the promotion of real economic activity. The financial system consists directly of three basic financial components: institutions, markets and infrastructure. These components interact with each other as well as with other indirect participants in the system ? such as households, non-financial corporations and the public sector ? to allocate economic resources and redistribute financial risks. The Report also includes special articles related to the development of the financial sector as well as risk management practices.
