A Modern Payment System for a Modern World

FRB Town Hall Webinar

The Federal Reserve Board of Governors published a Federal Register Notice outlining two potential actions to further support the development of faster payments in the United States:

1.  the development of a service for real-time interbank settlement of faster payments 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year (24x7x365); and

2.  the creation of a liquidity management tool that would enable transfers between Federal Reserve accounts on a 24x7x365 basis to support services for real-time interbank settlement of faster payments.

The past few weeks, Fed representatives have been canvassing the country, hosting town halls in order to build the understanding of the potential actions the Fed has proposed, and engage in dialog with stakeholders. Now, we are bringing a town hall to you virtually! Sign-up to attend a webinar on the Faster Payments Settlement Assessment Federal Register Notice.
