The Financial Transparency Act, cosponsored by nearly 30 Members of the House of Representatives, will provide a strong mandate for modernization by directing agencies to adopt consistent data standards for the information they are already collecting under securities, commodities, and banking laws.

A panel of experts will explain how standardized data fields and formats can modernize financial regulatory reporting to better serve investors, agencies, and the financial industry.
