The Americas Center's Purpose
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 Operations and Administrative Services divisions. The center provides a framework for collaboration among Bank staff whose responsibilities relate to the Americas and Spain. This collaboration enables the Bank more effectively to leverage its strengths and integrate its resources to serve internal and external constituencies through a wide variety of initiatives. These efforts include sponsoring policy conferences, analyzing key regional banking and economic trends in the area, participating in exchange programs, providing technical assistance, and conducting public outreach and educational activities.
Our mission: To provide leadership to fulfill the Bank's responsibility in key supervisory, financial, and economic matters related to the Americas by fostering effective cross-functional collaboration and communication among Bank, System, public, and private stakeholders.
