Public policy

The World Gold Council engages with governments and supranational organisations on gold’s role in today’s global financial architecture.

Our Reserve Asset Management programme provides research, education and training on the gold market to reserve asset managers and government officials around the world. It equips them with the tools they need to make an informed decision about the role of gold in their country’s foreign reserves.

Our Public Policy team works with regulators and policymakers to advise on how gold can help to reduce some of the systemic risks in the global financial sector that contributed to the 2008 financial crisis. The team plays a pivotal role in ensuring that gold’s unique characteristics are considered in important macro-economic and financial market debates.
