Since the Republic of Marshall Islands (RMI) uses the U.S. dollar as its currency, the central monetary authority on the island, and any restrictions in connection with the movement of funds into and out of her there. Financial System RMS is a continuation of the U.S. financial system. This situation effectively prevents the use of monetary policy for economic management of RMS. If a resident RMO is not suitable local financial regime, then they can keep their reserves and to borrow from abroad without any restrictions, which many do. Likewise, the government can not print bank notes to finance the budget deficit, ie devalue its currency and boost inflation.

Formally, the financial sector - an area where lenders conduct their banking business - made up of two U.S. commercial banks: Bank of Guam s and s Bank of Hawaii, is also a registered domestic commercial bank in the Bank s Marshall Aylendz. Each of the three banks have branches on the atoll of Majuro, the Bank and the Bank of Guam s s Marshall Aylendz also represented on the atoll of Ebay. The banking sector also includes government-owned Marshall Island Divelopment Bank (Development Bank of the Marshall Islands). This bank belongs mainly to the state. Deposits in U.S. banks are protected (up to U.S. $ 100 000 deposit) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, which oversees the activities of banks in the U.S. according to the requirements of the Federal Reserve Bank and the U.S. Treasury.

Activities of the Bank of Marshall Islands is controlled in accordance with the laws of the Republic of the Marshall Islands, the depositors of the bank deposits are not protected by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). Nevertheless, in this particular bank holds the largest amount of deposits in the Republic, and authorities is very difficult for him to exercise control. The Banking Act 1987 provides the legal scheme of banking activities and the establishment of the Administration Commissioner for banking activities. The law provides for the introduction of prudential banking standards by the rules of banking activities and prescribed politics in the banking sector, the codification of accounting rules and reporting, increased awareness of credit risk, the licensing of banks and financial analysis of banking institutions and formal procedures of bank checks and the implementation of measures to introduce All of these measures. This orthodox approach to the control of banks requires significantly more resources than they can provide the RMS, as well as many small developing countries. Typically, the Pacific Islands, and the RMS. Local registration have only one or two commercial banks, while all others are branches of banks registered and controlled in much larger and better equipped jurisdictions. Difficulties and costs of establishing and maintaining local control of all proportion to the benefits. Probable solution to this problem is clustering at the regional scale and sharing of costs. Currently, this issue is addressed by the Pacific Financial Technical Assistance Centre (PFTAC).

RMS operate all three banks:
Bank of Guam s (Bank of Guam)
S Bank of Hawaii (Bank of Hawaii)
The Bank s Marshall Aylendz (Bank of the Marshall Islands)
