The Committee’s membership includes thirty-nine leaders drawn from across the financial sector, including banks, broker-dealers, asset managers, private funds and insurance companies. Leading figures from the academic community are also active participants.

The Committee Co-Chairs are R. Glenn Hubbard, Dean of Columbia Business School, and John L. Thornton, Chairman of the Brookings Institution. The Committee’s Director is Hal S. Scott, Nomura Professor and Director of the Program on International Financial Systems at Harvard Law School.

Founded in 2006, the Committee undertook its first major report on the U.S. capital markets at the request of U.S. Secretary of the Treasury, Henry M. Paulson. Over ten years later, the Committee continues to develop and promote policy reforms that would enhance opportunities for U.S. investors and promote real economic growth.
