What People Are Saying

“Dennis Kelleher [is] one of the most powerful lobbyists on financial regulatory reform.”

“It's more important than ever that consumers and taxpayers have strong advocates like Dennis and Better Markets to stand up for ordinary Americans.”

“Kelleher, a former attorney at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, has become well-known for his critique of both Wall Street banks and regulators who he has often accused of failing to hold the banks accountable for wrongdoing.”

“Dennis is one of the most plugged in and important names here in Washington as the founder and leader of the investor advocacy group Better Markets. His views can not only drive fear into the heart of Wall Street, but they are also driving the conversation on Capitol Hill, especially on the most pressing topics concerning market abuse, risk and the integrity of the financial system.”

“Better Markets encourages a free flow of reform-minded ideals by bringing transparency and some small counterweight to the lobbying goliath of Wall Street.”

“Dennis Kelleher is one of the most effective group CEOs in Washington, D.C., and Better Markets’ record of achievement proves that.”

“On the front-lines of this effort is Better Markets, a relatively new advocacy group pushing to ensure new regulations are as strong as possible.”
