Conference Announcement and Agenda
The Evolving Structure of the U.S. Treasury Market: Second Annual Conference
October 24, 2016
The U.S. Treasury market is the deepest and most liquid government securities market in the world. Because of the Treasury market's unique role in the global economy, its liquidity and functioning have implications for the cost of financing the government, the market's role as a risk-free benchmark for pricing financial instruments, the costs borne by investors transacting in the Treasury market, and the implementation of monetary policy.

In order to better understand the key factors underlying the evolution of the Treasury market's current structure and liquidity, the U.S. Department of the Treasury, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, and the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (Joint Member Agencies) held a conference last October to explore an array of questions on this issue.

As a follow up, this year's conference will be an opportunity to take stock of the progress made by the Joint Member Agencies since the Joint Staff Report: The U.S. Treasury Market on October 15, 2014 and Evolving Structure of the U.S. Treasury Market Conference, including advances related to transaction data reporting and various rules and regulations. Participants, including those from the official and private sectors, will also discuss topics that will shape the market in years to come.
