The Financial Services Forum "is a non-partisan financial and economic policy organization comprised of the chief executive officers of 20 of the largest and most diversified financial institutions with business operations in the United States. The Forum works to promote policies that enhance savings and investment in the United States and that ensure an open, competitive and sound global financial services marketplace...

"As a group, the Forum's member institutions employ more than 2 million people in 175 countries and hold combined assets of more than $19 trillion -- an amount greater than the annual economic output of the United States, Germany, and China combined.

"G. Kennedy Thompson, chairman, president, and chief executive officer of Wachovia, is the chairman of the Forum.

"Former United States Commerce Secretary Donald L. Evans is the Forum's chief executive officer and Robert S. Nichols, former assistant secretary for public affairs at the U.S. Treasury Department, serves as the Forum's president and chief operating officer.

"The Forum was founded in 2000 and has been called "perhaps the country's most powerful trade association," by Time." [1]
