Reserves Advisory & Management Program (RAMP)

  • GOAL

    To provide a detailed review of USD short-term instruments and USD payment operations for central banks acting as respondent and correspondent.


    In managing foreign currency reserves and cross-border payments, every central bank is necessarily investing in short-term money markets and seeking to align their front to back office operations with industry best practices. Workshop participants will be expected to take an active role in driving the discussion and sharing lessons learned from their respective institutions. This course will also include participant panel discussions. Speakers include officials from the New York Fed, World Bank, other official sector institutions, and the private sector.


    • US money market instruments, trading, and rates
    • Federal Reserve policy and relationship to money market rates
    • Cross–border payment operations, end-to-end controls, and relevant messaging and payment infrastructures
    • AML/CFT laws and compliance frameworks for respondent and correspondent central banks
    • Cyber security and end-point security considerations for payment operations including discussion of recent international policy strategies to mitigate these risks
