The Financial Services Forum believes that now is the time for policymakers to review and rebalance regulations to promote efficiency and effectiveness, enhance safety and soundness across the banking industry and promote sustained U.S. economic growth.
Policy PrioritiesView All
Setting Appropriate and Coherent Capital and Liquidity Requirements
We support efforts underway in Congress and at the federal banking agencies to recalibrate the range of capital and liquidity requirements that apply to banks of all sizes, including Forum members, which are the largest and most diversified financial institutions headquartered in the United States.
Promoting an Effective and Efficient Regulatory and Supervisory System
We encourage government agencies to provide greater transparency into supervisory processes and better align U.S. regulatory standards with those agreed to by international regulators. Striking an appropriate balance by weighing actual costs and benefits of regulation and supervision best promotes a robust financial sector domestically and abroad.
Ensuring Open and Competitive Capital Markets
We support maintaining deep and liquid capital markets in the United States, which foster our sustained economic growth.
