What People Are Saying

“[Better Markets] first shot to fame during the 2008 global financial crisis when it became a thorn in the side of Wall Street and Washington regulators because it complained loudly—and correctly—about the follies of excessive financial deregulation. Since then, it has continued to scrutinize the more recondite details of US regulation, complaining, again rightly, that the rules have recently been watered down.”

“Dennis Kelleher and his team at Better Markets have consistently pushed for financial reform that will help protect the U.S. economy from another financial crash. They are strong partners in the fight to level the playing field for middle-class families and have been persistent fighters for the American people, their jobs, savings and retirements.”

“Better Markets has served as a valuable and important voice pushing for fairness in our financial system.”

“Dennis Kelleher over at Better Markets, a huge presence in Washington, DC. A nonprofit, of course, established to make finance and government serve society a little bit better.”

“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.”
