About Us

Mission Statement

The Bank Policy Institute (BPI) is a nonpartisan public policy, research and advocacy group, representing the nation’s leading banks. Our members include universal banks, regional banks and the major foreign banks doing business in the United States. Collectively, they employ nearly 2 million Americans, make 68% of all loans and nearly half of the nation’s small business loans and serve as an engine for financial innovation and economic growth.

Our staff includes economists, researchers, financial analysts and attorneys, all focused on using data and analysis to shape sound policy.  We distribute our research and analysis to U.S. and global regulators, members of Congress, academics and media through academic-quality research papers, blog posts, white papers, comment letters, and Congressional testimony.

We also serve our members through our Business-Innovation-Technology-Security division (better known as BITS), which provides an executive-level forum to discuss and promote current and emerging technology, foster innovation, reduce fraud and improve cybersecurity and risk management practices for the nation’s financial sector.

We take as a given that the business of banking is the business of taking and managing risk. BPI aims to shape policy to allow the nation’s leading banks to best serve their customers and fulfill their vital economic role while holding sufficient capital and liquidity to ensure that the risks they take are borne by their shareholders and creditors, not the taxpayer.
