WELLINGTON, Nov 18 (Reuters) - The Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) said on Wednesday that market sensitive information was accidentally disclosed to a group of financial services firms a short time before it was made public in the November Monetary Policy Statement (MPS).
RBNZ said a letter was sent to non-bank financial institutions confirming it was introducing a Funding for Lending Programme (FLP), about 45 minutes before it was publicly announced on Nov. 11 at 2 p.m. local time (0100 GMT).
The central bank said it has engaged Deloitte to independently review internal processes. (Reporting by Praveen Menon; Editing by Jacqueline Wong)
