November 21, 2018

NEW YORK—On Monday, December 3, 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) will convene the fourth annual conference on the evolution of the U.S. Treasury market structure at the New York Fed.

In order to better understand the key factors underlying the evolution of the Treasury market's current structure and liquidity, the Joint Member Agencies held conferences in October 2015, October 2016 and November 2017 to explore an array of questions on these issues, which followed the Joint Staff Report: The U.S. Treasury Market on October 15, 2014, released in July 2015. The keynote addresses and expert panels at this year's conference will cover a range of topics related to the Treasury market. Participants, including academics and representatives from the public and private sectors, will discuss how markets may be affected in the coming years.

Featured speakers at this year's conference will include:

  • John C. Williams, President and CEO, Federal Reserve Bank of New York
  • The Honorable J. Christopher Giancarlo, Chairman, U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission
  • The Honorable Lael Brainard, Governor, Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System
  • Craig Phillips, Counselor to the Secretary, U.S. Department of the Treasury
