Also, currently serves as the Vice-Chairman of the Bank for International Settlements (BIS), since November 2021. In June 2022, Ingves announced that he will resign as Governor of Sveriges Riksbank on 31 December 2022.

Ingves was named Governor of Sveriges Riksbank in 2006. In response to the Icelandic financial crisis of 2008, Ingves argued that "in times of uncertainty and turmoil, the central banks have a responsibility to cooperate." Ingves confronted the "task of safeguarding macroeconomic and financial stability" in 2008; and in 2009, he presided over a decline to the lowest official Swedish interest rate since records began in 1907.
