Institutional Setting

As of 2012 Suriname´s financial sector comprised: the Central Bank of Suriname (CBoS), nine commercial banks (including subsidiaries), investment and finance companies, savings and credit unions, the National Development Bank, insurance companies, pension funds, provident funds, the stock exchange, foreign exchange bureaus, and money transfer houses.

Sinds 2004 kent Suriname de Surinaamse dollar, de SRD. De naam dollar is onder andere gekozen omdat de meeste CARICOM-lidlanden de dollar als munteenheid hebben. De Surinaamse dollar is sinds 1 januari 2004 het officiële betaalmiddel in Suriname.

In het kader van het door haar te voeren monetair beleid is de Centrale Bank van Suriname per 1 maart 1995 overgegaan tot de uitgifte van een nieuwe en unieke beleggingsmogelijkheid in Surinaamse guldens, namelijk het Powisi-goudcertificaat.
