The 2019 U.S. Treasury Market Conference

September 23, 2019

The U.S. Treasury market is the deepest and most liquid government securities market in the world. It plays a critical and unique role in the global economy, serving as the primary means of financing the U.S. federal government, a significant investment instrument and hedging vehicle for global investors, a risk-free benchmark for other financial instruments, and an important market for the Federal Reserve’s implementation of monetary policy.

Since 2015, 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) have co-hosted an annual conference to examine ongoing developments in the U.S. Treasury market.

The Joint Member Agencies will convene the fifth annual conference on Monday, September 23, 2019, at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. This year’s topics include TRACE for Treasuries, the evolution of direct streaming and implications for market structure, potential risks and risk management strategies, and Treasury debt issuance plans, including considerations for a potential Treasury SOFR FRN.  

The keynote addresses and expert panels include representatives from both the public and private sectors.  Featured speakers at this year's conference include:

  • John C. Williams, President and CEO, Federal Reserve Bank of New York
  • The Honorable Heath P. Tarbert, Chairman, U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission
  • The Honorable Elad L. Roisman, Commissioner, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission
  • The Honorable Justin Muzinich, Deputy Secretary of the Treasury, U.S. Department of the Treasury
