Our Work. Our People.
Our mission is to promote stable prices, encourage maximum sustainable economic growth and support financial stability. We approach this mission from a variety of directions.
For example, our economists conduct regional, national and international economic research. Other staff members supervise financial institutions to help ensure their safety and soundness. Financial services are provided to the District’s banks and to the U.S. Treasury to keep the nation’s payment system running efficiently. The Bank develops financial and economic education curricula and programs for pre-K through college and beyond. The St. Louis Fed also works within communities to foster innovation and partnerships in community development.
The numbers that follow provide a glimpse of our work and our people over the past year. To download a PDF of these pages, click here.
