The 2020 U.S. Treasury Market Conference

September 29, 2020

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 sixth annual conference on Tuesday, September 29, 2020. This year’s event, which will take place via videoconference, will focus on recent developments in the Treasury Market, including the impact of the COVID-19 crisis.

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
