FSR Statement on 2016 Election Outcome

Financial Industry Looks Forward to Working with President Trump and New Congress

Washington, DC—The Financial Services Roundtable is urging President-elect Donald Trump to act swiftly to enact policies to improve the economy, grow good-paying jobs, encourage innovation, and protect both consumers and taxpayers. 

“Our country faces big challenges, but it also has incredible opportunities for innovation and growth that will provide a brighter future for people who need hope and help,” said FSR CEO Tim Pawlenty. “The new Administration and Congress should enact policies that grow the economy, spur innovation, protect both consumers and taxpayers, add good-paying jobs, and help more Americans reach their financial goals.”  

FSR advocates before policymakers in Washington and is a non-partisan organization that does not endorse any candidate or political party. FSR’s priorities for 2017 include:
  • FinTech policy and collaboration
  • Federal Regulatory Transparency
  • Housing Finance Reform
  • Tax Reform
  • Cybersecurity
  • Trade
  • Retirement Security Policy
  •  Insurance Capital Standards and Flood Insurance

Member companies participate through the Chief Executive Officer and other senior executives nominated by the CEO. FSR member companies provide fuel for America’s economic engine, accounting for $92.7 trillion in managed assets, $1.2 trillion in revenue, and 2.3 million jobs. Learn more at
