Adrienne A. Harris was sworn in January 25, 2022 as superintendent of the New York Department of Financial Services (DFS). New York is a key U.S. and global financial center; DFS regulates and supervises thousands of banks, insurance companies, mortgage originators, and many foreign bank branches and agencies.
On February 14, 2022, the Brookings Center on Regulation and Markets hosted a fireside chat with Superintendent Harris to explore her vision and agenda as Superintendent of New York DFS, a role that has implications across New York State, America, and the world. Brookings Senior Fellow Aaron Klein asked Superintendent Harris about her priorities; areas of emphasis; and her views on regulation, supervision, and state and federal roles in financial regulation. The conversation spanned the superintendent’s broad jurisdiction and important financial issues she will face, including the role of financial technology, crypto currency, and consumer protection.
