The Practice includes two services lines: the Financial Architecture and Banking Systems (FABS)service line and the Financial Market Integrity service line. The FABS service line is managing the Financial Sector Assessment Program (FSAP) which is a joint program of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. FSAPs provide third-party, comprehensive assessments of member countries’ financial system vulnerabilities and develop appropriate policy responses. The Practice also houses the Financial Sector Reform and Strengthening (FIRST) Initiative which is a multi-donor trust fund managed by the World Bank, financing technical assistance aimed at strengthening  financial sectors in low and middle income countries.
