New York Fed to Host Conference on TMPG Best Practices and Information Handling on October 5

September 29, 2017

NEW YORK—The Treasury Market Practices Group (TMPG), which is sponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, is a group of market professionals committed to supporting the integrity and efficiency of the Treasury, agency debt, and agency MBS markets. After 10 years of these efforts, the TMPG and the New York Fed are hosting a conference on October 5, 2017 to raise awareness about the TMPG’s best practice recommendations—how they have evolved over the years and the priorities going forward.

Featured speakers at the conference include Governor Jerome Powell of the Federal Reserve Board of Governors, Counselor to the Secretary Craig Phillips of the U.S. Department of the Treasury, President William Dudley of the New York Fed, and TMPG members Tom Wipf of Morgan Stanley and Sandie O'Connor of JP Morgan Chase.

The conference will mark this milestone in TMPG’s history by underscoring its key initiatives. In addition, a panel of TMPG members will discuss the recently published proposed best practices on information handling, on which the TMPG is seeking comment through mid-October 2017, and provide an opportunity for the audience to engage with the panel.

The full agenda for the conference is available on the New York Fed’s website.

This event is open to members of the press. The keynote address is expected to be on the record, and Chatham House Rule will be in effect for all else, meaning media may report on comments made during the event, but may not attribute remarks to individuals or organizations.
