About The Forum

The Financial Services Forum is a non-partisan financial and economic policy organization comprised of the CEOs of the largest and most diversified financial services institutions with business operations in the United States.

The purpose of the Forum is to pursue policies that encourage savings and investment, promote an open and competitive global marketplace, and ensure the opportunity of people everywhere to participate fully and productively in the 21st-century global economy.

The Forum’s three primary missions are:

1) To educate the public about the importance of robust capital markets


2) To encourage a competitive global marketplace


3) To shape the national and international regulatory dialogue



Brian Moynihan, Chief Executive Officer of Bank of America, is the Forum’s Chairman.

James Gorman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Morgan Stanley, is the Forum’s Vice Chair.

The Forum was founded in 2000 and has been called “perhaps the country’s most powerful trade association” by Time.
