I also assisted the governments in recent banking crises, provided assistance in developing inflation targeting monetary policy frameworks lead Financial Sector Assessment Programs Specialties: Advising central banks on the development of their capacity to formulate and implement monetary policy, advising on post conflict monetary rebuilding, and banking crisis management.

I coordinated our Regulatory Advisory services through regional groups across the globe, able to respond to the specific demands of each territory and to support. I meet regularly with regulators to discuss topical issues. I am working closely with many regulators concerning Basel II & III and IFRS, and extensive consultation to study the impact of Basel II on the financial services industry and the economy of the USA and Middle East and China. I have advised several financial regulators on a number of key areas, in particular on the impact of IFRS on central banks and on the financial services industry they regulate. I advise regulators on the implications of corporate governance for the financial services industry, and the importance and relevance of these developments for central banks themselves. I am dealing with Central banks to discuss corporate governance-related issues, in particular associated with committee structures (including Audit Committee); risk management and internal controls; establishment and measurement of effective Internal Audit Departments; and corporate governance standards for the banking industry.
