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 convened the eighth annual conference on Wednesday, November 16, 2022, at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. The keynote addresses and expert panels at this year's conference covered a range of topics related to the Treasury market and included representatives from the Joint Member Agencies as well as the public and private sectors.
