About the OFR

The Office of Financial Research (OFR) helps to promote financial stability by looking across the financial system to measure and analyze risks, perform essential research, and collect and standardize financial data.

Our job is to shine a light in the dark corners of the financial system to see where risks are going, assess how much of a threat they might pose, and provide policymakers with financial analysis, information, and evaluation of policy tools to mitigate them.

The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 established the OFR to support the Financial Stability Oversight Council, the Council’s member organizations, and the public.

The OFR has a Director appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate, and an organization built around a Research and Analysis Center, and a Data Center.


Promote financial stability by delivering high-quality financial data, standards and analysis for the Financial Stability Oversight Council and public.


A transparent, efficient and stable financial system.
