Keith Arnold, a former governor of the Central Bank of Belize (1992–2002), has died at the age of 72.

Arnold, who was the institution’s longest-serving governor, was one of a select few to hold all three of the nation’s chief economic offices: governor, finance secretary and head of the Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU).

“The central bank joins the family in mourning a departed servant, who served this institution and his country well,” said current governor Caroline Abel in a statement.
