The Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas:

We are one of 12 Reserve Banks that, along with the Board of Governors in Washington, D.C., constitute the nation's central bank. We are part of the Federal Reserve System, which was established by Congress in 1913. Our mission is to serve the interests of the American public by informing and influencing our nation's monetary policy, overseeing the safety and soundness of supervised financial institutions, fostering financial stability and delivering quality services to the United States government and the financial institutions in our region.

Although established by Congress, we are independent of government.

The Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas is located in Dallas, Texas, and has branch offices in Houston, San Antonio, and El Paso. The Bank represents the Eleventh Federal Reserve District, which includes Texas, northern Louisiana, and southern New Mexico. Our work includes economic research and thought leadership, community engagement on issues that impact the economy, supervision of banking organizations residing in the district, and a variety of payments services to financial institutions and the U.S. government.

The Banking Supervision Department

Banking Supervision is responsible for supervising and regulating certain segments of the financial industry to ensure they employ safe and sound business practices and comply with all applicable laws and regulations. We directly supervise bank holding companies, financial holding companies, state member banks, IT service providers, and certain nonbank subsidiaries. Supervision occurs through periodic examinations, as well as other routine surveillance activities. The Eleventh District has more than 200 staff focused on supervising the financial institutions in Texas, southern New Mexico, and northern Louisiana.

The Supervisory Risk and Surveillance (SRS) unit within Banking Supervision includes three specialty examination teams focused on bank secrecy act and anti-money laundering, information technology, and other specialty risks in banking; surveillance staff who monitor risk trends and their effects on financial institutions in our region; economists who work on internal supervisory risk models and research; and financial sector advisors who assist in briefing senior Bank leadership on developments in financial markets and institutions.
