About FSI PAC
FSI PAC is an important tool in FSI’s advocacy tool chest for maximizing our impact on issues critical to your business.
FSI PAC is a separate fund from membership dues that supports candidates who understand and influence issues important to independent broker-dealers and independent financial advisors. FSI PAC’s goal is to advance the legislative and regulatory interest of the FSI members on the national level. FSI membership dues income may not be used to support candidates.
Through the FSI PAC, we can influence Congress, both on specific legislation and to enlist their support to ensure effective oversight of regulators. FSI PAC pools the resources of our members so we can support the election of candidates who share our views on the appropriate role of regulation and the value of financial advice for all Americans.
FSI PAC supports candidates who demonstrate an understanding of the issues that are important to FSI’s members and share our vision of investment advice for all. In determining how funds shall be distributed, FSI considers three criteria:
- Whether the candidate holds a leadership or policy-shaping position or is likely to hold such a position in the future;
- Geographic location of the candidate’s district as it relates to FSI members; and
- Voting record on financial issues that are of importance to FSI and our members
