Innovation Hours, hosted by the Federal Reserve

The Federal Reserve Board and Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco are co-hosting virtual “office hours” to facilitate discussions with individual firms about digital innovation in finance. These meetings can be two-way learning opportunities for both firms and Federal Reserve staff.

The program is open to financial institutions and financial technology firms offering financial products and services. Please note: Federal Reserve staff will not provide new guidance or supervisory opinions during an office hour session.

You are also invited to join us for a Fireside Chat with Tracy Basinger, executive vice president at the San Francisco Fed, and Kavita Jain, deputy associate director at the Board of Governors, on Tuesday, August 11 at noon PDT.

Governor Lael Brainard, Federal Reserve Board, will wrap up Innovation Office Hours with closing remarks on Thursday, August 13 at noon PDT. Join live on Webex.
