International Services, Seminars & Training

The New York 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.

Services for Central Banks

Central banks and monetary institutions around the world hold a sizable portion of their international reserves in U.S. dollars. The New York Fed provides accounts where these official institutions may choose to hold, transact in, and invest in U.S. dollars. The banking services associated with these accounts include payment services, custodial services for securities and gold, and investment services. See Services to Central Banks for more information on the services provided.

About 250 official account holders maintain approximately $3 trillion in U.S. dollar-denominated assets in custody at the New York Fed, which represents about half of the world's overall official U.S. dollar reserves.

The New York Fed maintains a secure website for the sole use of its official international account holders. Central banks interested in learning more about this service should contact
