The Center's Purpose
The Americas Center is a cooperative initiative among the Supervision and Regulation, Research, and Financial Services Divisions of the Atlanta Fed and the Federal Reserve System's Retail Payments Office. The center provides a framework for collaboration among bank staff whose responsibilities relate to the Americas and thus 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 initiatives 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.
