Washington, D.C. – The Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) is the winner of Prospect magazine’s 2015 Think Tank of the Year award in the “U.S. Economic and Financial” category. The award honors the BPC’s Financial Regulatory Reform Initiative for its extensive examination of how well the Dodd-Frank Act is being implemented.
The Prospect Think Tank of the Year Awards were founded in 2001 to celebrate the influential policy work that think tanks around the world are doing to analyze and solve “the most pressing challenges facing people, governments and businesses today.” “We are thrilled to have our work recognized by the Prospect and hope to continue to be a leading voice on the advancement of pragmatic, bipartisan policy solutions to improve the quality of financial regulation,” said Aaron Klein, director of the Financial Regulatory Reform Initiative.
The Financial Regulatory Reform Initiative has written groundbreaking reports evaluating the implementation of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. Reports analyzing systemic risk, regulatory structure, the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and what to do about the ‘Too Big to Fail’ concern regarding large, complex financial institutions have resulted in changes in how financial regulation takes place. The team’s work has been featured prominently in The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, American Banker, Washington Examiner and Bloomberg. The initiative’s latest work on insurance regulation and the performance of the Financial Stability Oversight Council will continue to produce insights on practical solutions to financial regulation.
Last year, BPC’s Financial Regulatory Reform Initiative was the first-ever think tank recipient of the Burton Foundation’s “Regulatory Innovation Award”.
