The governor of the Czech National Bank has received one of the most prestigious awards in the sector – the title of European bank governor of the year from The Banker magazine. Jiří Rusnok was given the award for dropping the low crown regime and trying to put a lid on a domestic real estate bubble. Rusnok's predecessor, Miroslav Singer, received the same award in 2014 after launching the so-called low crown policy.
