NYSE Euronext's CEO Duncan Niederauer presents at the SEC's Advisory Committee on Small and Emerging Companies on May 1.
NYSE Euronext is committed to being a strong advocate for our issuers, who collectively provide over 30 million jobs. The purpose of our efforts is to provide the NYSE listed community with:
• An active voice on key policy and regulatory matters,
• Access to decision makers and key leaders in government,
• Reliable information about our advocacy agenda, events and issues from Washington.
The views of our constituents are important to us as we shape our advocacy platform. We invite you to join our community and get involved.
Jobs will come from small businesses. Without access to capital, these businesses will not grow and create jobs. Even in a difficult economy, companies that have managed to go public are thriving.
We support tax reform that will offer better incentives to invest in the U.S., and grow our domestic workforce. We also back ways to find the right balance to broaden our base and lower our corp. tax rate to be globally competitive.
NYSE is a leading proponent for the highest standards of corporate governance and ethical behavior, with governance rules in place for approximately 150 years.
NYSE is an active voice for our issuers during a period of transformation and re-regulation of the financial industry, with a pragmatic message that supports competition.
Growth and job creation are key themes for NYSE Euronext, which has engaged with U.S. policymakers to develop bipartisan legislative solutions that promote job growth and business expansion. Our work includes:
Testifying on Capitol Hill on the importance of job creation.
Joining an IPO Task Force and submitting to the U.S. Treasury and Congress recommendations aimed at helping emerging growth companies.
Hosting a panel and webinar highlighting implications of the Jobs Act.
Weighing in with a Fortune Magazine Op-Ed by NYSE Euronext CEO Duncan L. Niederauer on why the Jobs Act is a great start and what more is needed.
