Host: American Enterprise Institute. The Shadow Financial Regulatory Committee (SFRC) is a group of publicly recognized independent experts on the financial services industry—including banking, insurance, and securities—who meet regularly to study and critique regulatory policies affecting this sector of the economy. At the two closed sessions before the luncheon, committee members will discuss, among other things, the recent turmoil in financial markets and proposed remedies; mortgage foreclosure initiatives; and issues relating to government-sponsored enterprises, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision, and the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation.
At the luncheon press briefing that follows these sessions, SFRC members will issue one or more statements and answer questions relating to the topics discussed. On Sunday evening, May 4, the committee will send out e-mail notices of the subjects that will be covered in Monday’s statements.
