TIM PAWLENTY: CEOs face many challenges—financial performance, market growth, customer satisfaction, and talent retention—to name just a few. One challenge, however, is newer and evolving more rapidly than most others: the cyberattack.
Financial Services Roundtable (FSR) is the leading advocacy organization for America’s financial services industry. With a 100- year tradition of service and accomplishment, FSR is a dynamic, forward-looking association advocating for the top financial services companies, keeping them informed on the vital policy and regulatory matters that impact their business.
FSR members include the leading banking, insurance, asset management, finance and credit card companies in America. We are financing the American economy — creating jobs, expanding businesses, securing homes, businesses and retirement, insuring growth and building consumer confidence.
With expanding Washington involvement in our industry, forming relationships and engaging with public officials and policymakers is critical to helping our members see around the curve, understand policies and regulations, and provide input to help shape them.
FSR is driven at the CEO level giving us a unique and influential voice in Washington. At every level of the government, FSR is working to ensure that our members’ interests are well represented.
At FSR, we believe a competitive, private marketplace provides the best mechanism for financing and growing the American economy. Financial services companies provide the capital, security and the foundation needed for economic growth in both the domestic and global markets.
FSR works with elected officials and regulators to ensure our members’ concerns are heard as policy is developed. Improving public policy governing the financial services sector is vital to ensure fair and clear rules exist that balance consumer and business needs with financial security and economic growth.
