Regulatory Feedback Initiative



As advocates for the banking industry, it is troubling to see what is going on in our regulatory system. Regulators hold all the cards, from the smallest operational details to the very survival of a bank. Banks are sworn to secrecy and, as such, each bank is on an island, relatively powerless to fight back. Most banks have determined that fighting with their regulator is futile and foolish - but there are times when a fight, and the balance it would provide is needed, not just for the bank, but for the communities they serve and the economy in general.

To that end, the Connecticut Bankers Association has partnered with the Coalition of State Bankers Associations, which has created a tool that will hopefully lead to some balance and accountability - we call it the “Regulatory Feedback Initiative” or “RFI”.

Financial Literacy


Financial literacy is the ability to understand money and how to manage it so that a person can make informed financial decisions. Financial literacy often is the first step toward financial stability and helps consumers save, better protect and manage their money, prepare for unexpected life events, and plan for short- and long-term goals.
