What We Do

  • The SF Fed’s Banking Supervision group is responsible for executing the Federal Reserve’s supervisory policies within the western United States through on-site examinations and off-site supervision activities. We also work within the Federal Reserve System at a national level supervising and assessing risk at large financial institutions.
  • We are also responsible for the Reserve Bank’s discount window and payment system risk functions. 
  • We provide opportunities to make a difference through consumer protection and assessing risks in the financial system. We work with other federal and state authorities to promote a safe and sound financial system and ensure fair and equal treatment of consumers in their financial transactions.
