The Federal Reserve Bank of New York works within the Federal Reserve System and with other public and private sector institutions to foster the safety, soundness and vitality of our economic and financial systems. Some of its most critical functions include the implementation of monetary policy, supervision and regulation of depository institutions, international operations and financial services.
The New York Fed oversees the Second Federal Reserve District, which includes New York State, the 12 northern counties of New Jersey, Fairfield County in Connecticut, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Though we serve the public interest in a geographically small area, the New York Fed is the largest Reserve Bank in terms of assets and volume of activity. We accomplish this with talented and innovative people working within a collaborative and inclusive culture.
