Beijing Financial Street (BFS), or Beijing Jinrong Street (BJS) (Chinese: 北京金融街; pinyin: Běijīng Jīnróng Jiē), is where Chinese regulatory agencies are located. According to 13th 5 years plan, Beijing Financial Street will be positioned more towards a regulatory agencies' precinct. The street is located inside Beijing's innermost 2nd Ring Road.

One of the central bank's headquarters (the other being located in Shanghai Lujiazui Financial City), and three national regulatory commissions of the central government are located here. They are the People's Bank of China (PBOC), the China Banking Regulatory Commission (CBRC), the China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC), and the China Insurance Regulatory Commission (CIRC).

Beijing Financial Street is being developed by Beijing Street Holding Company, Ltd. The architectural firm of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill; along with SWA landscape architects prepared the urban plan, landscape and the building design guidelines for Finance Street's Central Park District currently in construction with build-out scheduled for 2008. The building facilities are designed around interior courtyards, a design concept which typifies the ancient Hutong neighborhoods surrounding the Forbidden City.
