About Us

The mission of the Retail Payments Risk Forum of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta is to identify, detect, and encourage mitigation of risk in existing and emerging retail payments to contribute to the stability, efficiency, and availability of retail payments systems. We do so by:

  • Researching retail payments products and systems;
  • Collaborating with industry participants, regulators, law enforcement, the legal community, and others in the Federal Reserve System; and
  • Convening payments providers and parties integral to establishing new products, laws and regulations, policies, and standards that affect and shape retail payments.
