Monetary Affairs 

The Division of Monetary Affairs supports the Board and the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) in their monetary policy deliberations by preparing research and analysis in the fields of finance, money and banking, and monetary policy design and implementation. The Division also assists the Board and FOMC in preparing policy communications, maintains records of FOMC deliberations and decisions, and produces monetary and financial data. In addition, the Division contributes to the Board’s supervisory, regulatory, and financial stability functions.

Monetary Policy and Dealer Analysis

The Monetary Policy and Dealer Analysis section provides analysis to policymakers and engages in long-term research projects on: the relationship between monetary policy and financial stability; the availability of credit and leverage to financial institutions and investors, such as hedge funds, outside of the traditional banking system; the operations and activities of securities firms that serve as the Federal Reserve’s counterparties in its implementation of monetary policy; and Federal Reserve lending policies.  Section members analyze financial-market developments and dealer firms' activities for the Board and the FOMC and engage in a broad set of longer-term research projects on financial markets, financial institutions, and macroeconomics that are relevant for financial stability and monetary policy.
