Pope Francis on 5 June 2014 has replaced an all Italian board of Financial Information Authority which is Vatican's financial watchdog agency. The move was taken following  repeated clashes between the board and the agency's director.

The four new board members were appointed from Italy, Switzerland, Singapore and the United States on 5 June 2014. The board for first time includes a woman.

The previous board was named by Pope Benedict XVI in 2011, for five years.
