What We Do

THE IMPACT WE MAKE

For over 10 years, Better Markets has had a significant impact on financial reform – from re-shaping the political discourse to strengthening many parts of the Dodd-Frank rule-making process.

OUR IMPACT

During the past 10 years, Better Markets has had a significant impact on financial reform – from re-shaping the political discourse to strengthening many parts of the Dodd-Frank rule-making process. We’ve become a potent counterweight to the industry as the rules of financial reform are being drafted and challenged, filing more than 300 comment letters so that agencies finalize the strongest possible safeguards to protect the American people from another financial crash.

Better Markets led the charge against the industry attack on the proposed Volcker Rule limiting gambling by the big banks on Wall Street, meeting with regulators, testifying before Congress, advocating abroad, and ultimately protecting the rule from being killed.

Attacking the Climate Change Threat to the Financial System and the Economy

The intersection of climate change and finance has taken on a higher profile over the last few years, and it will be a focal point for regulators and public interest advocates for years to come. As a key component of the Environmental, Social, and Governance (“ESG”) movement, climate-related advocacy in the financial regulatory space needs to be increased, coordinated, comprehensive, and integrated to have a real impact. Better Markets’ Climate Initiative brings this comprehensive, coordinated, and integrated approach to finance, to elevate ESG as a priority across all the agencies and all the markets they regulate.
