Treasury’s Yellen Says US Financial System Operating in ‘Orderly Manner’

WASHINGTON—Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said on Monday the U.S. financial system was functioning in an “orderly manner” despite the current stock market sell-off, and valuations of some assets remain high compared to historical values.
In prepared testimony for a Senate Banking Committee hearing on Tuesday, Yellen said the Financial Stability Oversight Council (FSOC) will continue to monitor developments related to the war in Ukraine and continued struggles against the coronavirus pandemic.
“There is the potential for continued volatility and unevenness of global growth as countries continue to grapple with the pandemic,” Yellen said. “Russia’s unprovoked invasion of Ukraine has further increased economic uncertainty.”
