Our Vision & Mission
The Chicago Fed is guided by its vision and mission.
Our vision and values make us who we are. We anchor ourselves in these beliefs to continuously foster a more unified Bank community. Through them, we make a promise to each other that our work will reflect who we are as a team.
We serve the public interest by fostering a strong economy and promoting financial stability. We accomplish this with talented and innovative people working within a collaborative and inclusive culture.
The fundamental mission of the Federal Reserve System is to foster the stability, integrity and efficiency of the nation's monetary, financial and payment systems in order to promote optimal macroeconomic performance.
To this end, the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago participates in the formulation and implementation of national monetary policy; supervises and regulates state member banks, bank holding companies and foreign bank branches; and provides financial services to depository institutions and the U.S. government.
We are honest, fair, courageous and independent in order to maintain strong public confidence in our Bank and in the Federal Reserve System.
We value diverse talents and perspectives and empower one another to advance our mission.
We are accountable for our individual and collective actions and honor our commitments to the public and one another.
We strive to achieve the highest level of performance in pursuit of our mission.
