Advocacy

How do you advocate for my business?

As a leader in financial trading and listing services, NYSE has a deep commitment to serve as an advocate for the interests of our members, listed companies, partners and investors. We act as an advocate for our approximately 8,000 listed companies globally to ensure that issuers, investors and all of our customers have a voice when it comes to crucial topics that affect them. 

For us, advocacy means representing our community in discussions about critical public policy and legal issues that impact the financial industry and the industries of our clients and partners. Our Advocacy committee works with the financial community, members, clients and investors to determine positions on public policy and legislation and strategies to present our views on existing and proposed rules and regulations, particularly those related to creating more fair, transparent and efficient markets.
