September 30, 2013
The OFR delivered this report, Asset Management and Financial Stability, to the Financial Stability Oversight Council on ways that activities in the asset management industry could pose risks to the financial stability of the United States by creating, amplifying, or transmitting stress through the financial system.
The OFR studied the activities of asset management firms and funds at the request of the Council.
In developing the report, the OFR staff reviewed existing research, analyzed industry data, interviewed market participants, and consulted extensively with Council member agencies.
