Trump continues reshaping the Fed and picks a new 2nd-in-command

Clarida will serve as the vice chairman of the Fed for a four-year term, according to a statement released by the White House on Monday, Xinhua news agency reported.

Bowman, the first woman to serve as the top banking regulator in Kansas, would fill a spot on the Fed board that is reserved for a community banker or a regulator of community banks. Clarida is also nominated as one of the seven members of the Fed's board of governors.

Clarida is a Columbia University professor and the managing director and global strategic adviser at PIMCO, an investment management firm. He was a staff economist on the Council of Economic Advisers under President Ronald Reagan from 1986-87, an adviser at the New York Fed from 1991-92 and 1995-97, and an assistant secretary for economic policy at the Treasury from 2002-03.

The council helps the Fed gather feedback and perspectives on a wide range of policy issues and responsibilities including banking supervision and regulatory compliance, systemic risk oversight and monetary policy decision-making and implementation of the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA).
