ABSTRACT
The article presents a case study about the Office of Financial Research (OFR), the proposed risk body that will provide the data and analytic tools financial regulators need to prevent and manage future financial crises. According to U.S. Senator Jack Reed, the office's role is important. Kurt Schacht of the Chartered Financial Analyst Institute considers the office as the power of the system of risk oversight which will be assigned to establishing the systems and operations to track and aggregate system risk.
