The Federal Reserve System was established in 1913 in order to provide the nation with a safer, more flexible, and more stable monetary and financial system. The Fed sets the nation’s monetary policy, serves as the fiscal agent for the United States Treasury and supervises banking institutions, ensuring their stability and compliance with banking regulations. In addition, the Fed is also the banker’s bank, distributing currency and coin, transferring funds, as well as processing checks for financial institutions.
