Why the Fed?
At the Fed I have the opportunity to be part of policy discussions aimed at restoring financial market stability and promoting economic growth.
I recently accepted a secondment in the Reserve Bank of Australia's (RBA) Financial Stability Department in order to understand how central banks in this region are monitoring and addressing risks to financial stability. Prior to joining the RBA, my responsibilities as deputy policy advisor at the New York Fed included coordinating the Markets Groups views regarding various financial market reforms. Also, as Term Asset-Backed Securities Loan Facility (TALF) business lead, I had the opportunity to contribute to one of the Banks facilities designed to restore activity in the consumer ABS market and promote credit availability to the broader economy.
Challenges and Rewards of My Job
Global financial crises can be exhausting but I work with an amazing array of talented and dedicated colleagues who never cease to impress me. And I feel really good about the work we do.
