Dietrich Domanski

Secretary General

Dietrich Domanski is Secretary General of the FSB, a position he has held since January 2018. As Secretary General, Dietrich directs the work of the FSB’s secretariat, located in Basel. The FSB promotes international financial stability; it does so by coordinating national financial authorities and international standard-setting bodies as they work toward developing strong regulatory, supervisory and other financial sector policies.

Previously Dietrich was Deputy Head of the Monetary and Economic Department and Head of Economic Analysis at the Bank for International Settlements (BIS), where he coordinated the BIS’s cooperative activities, prepared the regular meetings of central bank Governors and oversaw analytical work on a wide range of financial stability issues.

Dietrich joined the BIS in 2000 and held various senior positions in the Monetary and Economic Department, including Head of Secretariat for the Committee on the Global Financial System and the Markets Committee during the financial crisis. Before joining the BIS, Dietrich headed the capital markets group in the Economics Department of the Deutsche Bundesbank. He also worked as an International Monetary Fund advisor to Bank Indonesia during the Asian crisis in the late 1990s.

Dietrich was born in 1963 in Clausthal (Germany). He holds Diplomas in Finance from the University for Applied Sciences of the Deutsche Bundesbank and in Economics from the University of Frankfurt.
