Networks Financial Institute has become a national thought leader working to answer challenges surrounding the financial services industry. A network of prominent research fellows, along with NFI’s own staff researchers, continually develop policy briefs, working papers and related research publications. This work helps inform industry leaders and decision-makers on some of today’s most pressing financial services issues such as home foreclosures, corporate responsibility, interest rates and payday lending, to name a few.
Since research in support of change must reach decision makers in a timely manner, NFI connects the research of thought leaders with those leading change in the financial services industry. Through a series of topic-specific conferences, meetings and publications, NFI facilitates educated, informed leadership in areas of critical importance to the future of the industry.

The prestigious 9th Annual Insurance Public Policy Summit took place in Washington D.C. on March 20, 2013. Networks Financial Institute's Annual Insurance Public Policy Summit is one of the most anticipated events in Washington, DC due to the insightful and in-depth information delivered each year.
The insurance regulatory system is evolving and there is still significant uncertainty as we await the international and domestic decisions on capital requirements, determinations of their cross-border equivalence, and decisions by the Financial Stability Oversight Council about the criteria for insurance companies to be classified as systemically important and the additional burdens that would entail. We continue to await the Federal Insurance Office’s Congressionally-mandated report to Congress on the state of regulation of the industry.
Over 125 individuals representing various segments of the insurance industry were in attendance to hear the latest developments for the industry.
