Financial Regulation News

Financial regulation has always been a well-covered and hotly debated topic, but it came into sharper focus during the 2008 financial crisis. That remains to this day which is why Wiser created the financial regulation news email. It is a daily digest of the best articles from around the web delivered to your inbox every day. Financial regulation news covers both the actions of regulators, as well as the debates and policy decisions that bring the regulations into place. All modern economies in the world operate a form of financial regulation to control and restrict the actions of financial institutions. This is done to protect the wider economy and preserve the integrity of the system, which in turn creates confidence and trust. In the United States, there are financial regulators at every level of government. At the top of the tree is the Federal Reserve but there are also state regulators and others. The challenge is to create a system that encourages growth and the pursuit of prosperity, while safeguarding the financial system and individual Americans. You can stay up-to-date with all developments when you register for the Wiser financial regulation news email.
