AAI is a leader in focusing awareness on “too big to fail” financial institutions, dominant payment card networks, and other issues in banking and financial services.

Antitrust actions against the largest international banks for colluding to manipulate financial benchmarks have led to some of the largest criminal fines in history. Credit card anti-steering rules and agreements fixing interchange fees have had enormous implications for the economy. And data-driven financial products and technological advances pose new competition policy challenges. AAI’s research and advocacy emphasize the importance of preserving competition among the powerful institutions that guide our financial system.
