Americas Center

The Americas Center intends to understand, cooperate and coordinate with, and respond effectively to changes in Latin American, Caribbean, and Spanish financial institutions and markets. Our mission involves better supervising constituencies, strengthening the Federal Reserve System's voice and influence in hemispheric policymaking, and adding value to evolving regional payment processing.

The Americas Center will help the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta achieve several of its major initiatives, including

  • developing knowledge centers that position the Bank to contribute significantly to Federal Reserve System objectives,
  • increasing the Bank's contribution to supervisory policy in Latin America and the Caribbean, and
  • influencing the evolution of retail payments toward a more electronic environment.
