My note to Congressional staff members …
the open source portal for financial markets regulatory information.
The Financial Times wrote about our new project recently and reblogged us saying “Riski – a wiki that aims to draw together as many resources as possible relating to the regulation of financial markets and products … the basic structure of the site is developed now and we are adding content… it’s in the earliest stages of development. The prime purpose of Riski is to help in the upcoming legislative process as Congress remakes the framework for financial markets regulation.”
The Congress and the executive branch have received increasing attention about the way that new law is being developed for financial markets.
Recent press accounts have highlighted the role of the banking and financial services lobbies.
