Topic: Where the US leads, the UK follows – why monetary policy actions from the US are important to all UK Banks

This session looks to de-mystify and bridge the often misunderstood interactions between market liquidity and regulatory requirements.

Simon Potter has been a non-resident senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics since September 2019. His current research focuses on central bank operations, monetary policy, digital currencies, reference rates, the role of the dollar, and economic forecasting.

Prior to joining the Institute, he was head of the Markets Group and System Open Market Account (SOMA) at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. In this role, he oversaw the implementation of domestic open market and foreign exchange trading operations on behalf of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC), the execution of fiscal agent support for the US Treasury, the provision of account services to foreign and international monetary authorities, and the administration and production of reference interest rates for US money markets.
