2016 Annual Research Review
Published: January 10, 2017
Our first Annual Research Review contains synopses of our working papers, briefs, and viewpoint published in fiscal 2016. Two themes emerge. First, our research reflects the importance of our independent view, which we are free to take because the OFR does not make policy. Second, the publication illustrates the importance of our mandate to improve financial data.
The Annual Research Review showcases and summarizes the briefs, working papers, and other OFR publications published during the fiscal year. This compilation demonstrates the OFR’s independent view. Because we do not make policy, we are free to take an independent perspective in evaluating regulations, including possible unintended consequences of policies that promote financial stability.
