The committee that advises the Treasury Office of Financial Research (OFR) is set to meet in open session July 26 in New York. The meeting agenda includes discussion of central counterparty resolution, U.S. corporate bond market liquidity, and regulatory reporting requirements.
The meeting time has been changed from 11 a.m. ET to 1 p.m. ET, the OFR said in a recent notice.
This will be the 12th meeting of the Financial Research Advisory Committee, which advises the OFR on its responsibilities under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank). The OFR is responsible for collecting and standardizing data on financial institutions and their activities and for supporting the work of Financial Stability Oversight Council (FSOC).
According to the committee website, panel members must be “recognized experts” in fields related to OFR’s duties and authorities, or representatives of sectors related to those duties and authorities. The currently 29-member panel is chaired by Lewis Alexander, Head of Fixed Income Research-Americas and U.S. Chief Economist of Nomura.
Randall S. Kroszner, a former Federal Reserve Board governor and now the Norman R. Bobins Professor of Economics at the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business, is vice chairman.
The July 26 meeting will be held in the Benjamin Strong Room of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, 33 Liberty St., New York, N.Y. 10045. This is a secured facility, and there is limited seating for attendees. Those wishing to attend must contact the OFR by email e-mail at OFR_FRAC@ofr.treasury.gov by 5 p.m. ET on Thursday, July 19, to inform the OFR of their desire to attend and receive further instructions about building clearance.
