SFIG Delivers Full Industry Perspective to Senior Treasury Staff

SFIG members and staff met with senior Treasury staff during the week of August 14th, the latest in a series of five meetings thus far, to discuss key issues impacting issuers and investors across various asset classes, allowing our broad membership to deliver a full industry perspective to Treasury.

These meetings followed Treasury's first report released in June which recommended 97 policies in the lending sector for Congress and regulators to re-examine. We believe the next report will focus on capital markets, including a section on securitization.
