Financial Regulation

The U.S. Chamber continues to promote and enact policies to ensure that U.S. capital markets are the fairest, most efficient, and innovative in the world.

Businesses of all sizes need well-functioning and multi-faceted capital markets. Excessive and unnecessary banking and securities regulations constrain access to capital for businesses, making it harder for them to form and grow. The Chamber believes a free and efficient capital market system is essential to economic growth and innovation.

In addition, public companies are facing increasing outside pressure to focus on short term gains and special interests over long term wellbeing and investment. The Chamber is focused on rebalancing the system to reinvigorate the public company model.
