WASHINGTON, D.C. – Tonight, Financial Services Institute (FSI) President & CEO Dale Brown released the following statement in response to the outcome of the elections:
“We congratulate all incumbents returning to service in Washington and in state capitols as well as all those freshmen who will begin their service. We look forward to working with them to enhance investor protection and expand access to affordable and objective financial advice for Main Street. As Washington shifts its collective attention to issues such as tax reform and the retirement crisis, we will remain vigilant in our advocacy efforts, and continue our constructive engagement with regulators as well as legislators on both sides of the aisle.”
