NASP Legislative Updates: A Wrap Up of a Busy Fall Season in Advocacy Efforts
NASP members representing a variety of firms (asset management, investment banking, manager of managers) from throughout the United States came together in Washington, D.C. to meet with key staffers on the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee as well as members of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee as part of NASP's Advocacy Day on the Hill.
NASP members also met with staffers for Senator Tim Scott (R-SC), Senator Bob Corker (R-TN), Senator Rand Paul (R-KY), Senator Jack Reed (D-RI), Senator Richard Shelby (R-AL), Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), and Senator Johnny Isakson (R-GA). NASP members highlighted their firm's capabilities and track records in doing business with corporate, state, and other institutional investors and also shared the barriers faced when attempting to do business with the federal government.
NASP also participated in a meeting at the White House with Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) and other notable Congressional and public and private sector leaders on the topic of diversifying Federal Pension Plans and co-hosted a briefing with the Office of Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ).
