The Wall Street Journal: Fed’s Dudley to announce his retirement sooner than expected

Federal Reserve Bank of New York President William Dudley is set to announce he will retire next year, around six months earlier than scheduled, and the announcement could come as soon as Monday, according to two people familiar with the matter.


The search for Dudley’s successor will start immediately with the aim of finding a new president in mid-2018, after which time Dudley will retire, according to people familiar with the matter.


The decision has been long-planned and is unrelated to President Donald Trump’s announcement Thursday that he would nominate central bank governor


Jerome Powell to succeed Chairwoman Janet Yellen when her term as chief expires in February, according to a person familiar with the matter.
