De La Rue takes top prize in annual Central Banking Awards

De La Rue has been named the Advisory and Consultancy Provider of the Year in the Central Banking awards for the launch of DLR Analytics.

This is the fifth year of the awards which recognise excellence in the Central Banking community. The panel of judges is made up of the Central Banking Editorial Team and Editorial Advisory Board, who are all former central bankers from around the world.


Christopher Jeffery, Chairman of the Central Banking Awards Committee and Editor-in-chief of Central Banking, said:

“DLR Analytics provides central banks with an invaluable way of forecasting the future demand for cash – an issue ever-more prevalent, given the rise of digital payments. The software proves substantial value can be taken from simpler aggregated data, reducing the costs for central banks investigating its cash’s lifecycle.”


Martin Sutherland, CEO of De La Rue, said:

“I am pleased this year with the performance of De La Rue and the progress we are making against our strategy. With our increased focus in innovation and technology, we are proud to have launched DLR Analytics in the market. DLR Analytics revolutionises the way that central banks can understand and forecast their cash requirements – and with more than 60 countries already signed up, we are setting new standards for industry. The investments we are making and service we are now offering will support our customers in making effective decisions, and will enable more effective and efficient use of cash.”
