The Federal Reserve Bank of New York works to promote sound and well-functioning financial systems and markets through its provision of industry and payment services, advancement of infrastructure reform in key markets and training and educational support to international institutions.
The Outreach and Education function engages, empowers and educates the Second District communities that the Bank serves, especially civic leaders, students, educators, small business owners, policymakers and the general public. It furthers the Bank's commitment to the region by listening to the communities we serve and leveraging our unique attributes to positively impact school and university programs, as well as analysis and research.
The NY Fed seminars, training programs, and conferences—and our account relationships with the international central banking community—position the Federal Reserve Bank of New York as a leader in policy, technology, and education for central bankers. On behalf of the Federal Reserve System, we provide correspondent and custodial banking services for central banks, monetary authorities, and certain international organizations to facilitate their official financial operations.
