Mexico central bank chief quits amid uncertainty

Friday, December 2, 2016


The governor of Mexico’s central bank, Agustín Carstens, said on Thursday that he would leave his position next July, adding to the uncertainty that has rattled the country’s economy since the election of Donald J. Trump.

Carstens, 58, a well-regarded economist, will leave the Bank of Mexico, where he has been governor for seven years, to lead the Bank for International Settlements, a financial institution based in Basel, Switzerland, that acts as a bank for central banks.
