Steely Nabiullina fights Russia’s fires

Elvira Nabiullina, Euromoney’s central bank governor of the year, is staunchly sticking to her controversial crisis-fighting plan as Russia reels from its biggest financial crisis since 1998.

 About the Central Bank Governor of the Year

Euromoney considered governors whose key decisions had directly benefited both the performance and perception of their country’s economic and financial achievements over the previous 12 months. It also took soundings from the world’s leading bankers, which we seek out in background meetings; and the analysis of the contributors to Euromoney Country Risk (ECR), which has more than 400 economists around the world contributing on a regular basis, as well as data sourced and compiled by ECR.
