Executive Programme Virtual Modules: Gold as a Reserve Asset


The Executive Programme in Gold Reserves Management is the World Gold Council’s flagship training programme for central banks. Traditionally, the programme is a 2-3 day on-site event featuring academics, industry experts, and central bankers sharing their expertise on gold. The global pandemic forced us to postpone the 2020 programme to this year.

We are pleased to announce that the Executive Programme will return on 6 October 2021 in a virtual format. The event is offered in conjunction with the University of Cambridge Judge Business School and is limited to central banks and official institutions only.

In anticipation of the virtual event, we are launching a series of videos which review some of the core components of the Executive Programme. The first video, which reviews the central bank case for gold, is available below. Other videos will be launched on a monthly basis, covering topics including drivers of gold, gold reserve operations, the changing international monetary system, and accounting for monetary gold.


All of the Executive Programme videos will be hosted on a learning portal that is available here: Executive Programme portal 

Please keep an eye out for a new video each month.
