DTCC Hosts Capitol Hill Reception

DTCC’s decision to hold its 2010 April Board meeting in Washington, D.C., underscored the company’s heightened focus on external affairs. It also created a golden opportunity to bring together leading industry executives with Senate and House members as well as key Congressional staffers at a reception the company hosted on Capitol Hill. The reception marked one element of DTCC’s external affairs program to educate policymakers on the company and its role in the global capital markets.


‘With the debate over financial re-regulation gaining momentum, the reception was well timed for our Board members, executive management team and legislators to interact informally and share their insights on financial reform and the latest developments in Congress.’

– Larry Thompson, DTCC managing director and general counsel


"With the debate over financial re-regulation gaining momentum, the reception was well timed for our Board members, executive management team and legislators to interact informally and share their insights on financial reform and the latest developments in Congress," said Larry Thompson, DTCC managing director and general counsel. "The turnout was strong, indicating that DTCC has established credibility on the Hill that will enhance our ability to work with lawmakers in the months ahead on issues involving financial re-regulation."


The two-hour event featured prominent lawmakers, including Senate Agriculture Committee Chairman Sen. Blanche Lincoln (D-AR), Senator Evan Bayh (D-IN) and several House members from the committees of jurisdiction over financial re-regulation. In addition, key staffers from the Senate Banking and Agriculture Committees and the House Financial Services and Agriculture Committees attended the event, which was held in the U.S. Capitol Family Dining Room on the Senate side of the Capitol. The room was secured for DTCC by the office of Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ). @
