Institutional Setting

As of 2012 Suriname´s financial sector comprised: the Central Bank of Suriname (CBvS), 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.

De Centrale Bank van Suriname beheert het betalingssysteem van Suriname. Momenteel heeft Suriname geen elektronisch interbancair betaalsysteem en alle lichtingen en afwikkelingen van interbancaire betalingen (inclusief cheques) worden gedeeltelijk handmatig uitgevoerd. In de komende periode zal de Centrale Bank zich inzetten om een modern, elektronisch betaalsysteem te introduceren.

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.
