The Americas Center, launched in 2005, is a cooperative initiative among the Federal Reserve System's Retail Payments Office, based in Atlanta, and the Atlanta Fed's Supervision and Regulation, Research, and Financial Services divisions. The center provides a framework for collaboration among bank staff whose responsibilities relate to the Americas. This collaboration enables the bank to more efficiently leverage its strengths and integrate its resources to serve internal and external constituencies through a wide variety of initiatives. These include sponsorship of policy conferences, analysis of key regional banking and economic trends in the area, exchange programs, technical assistance, and public outreach and educational activities.
Our mission: to provide leadership to fulfill the bank's responsibilities in key supervisory, financial, and economic matters related to the Americas by fostering effective cross-functional collaboration and communication among bank, System, and public- and private-sector stakeholders.
