There you learn, debate, and network with the best and the brightest, led by the inimitable Ziad Abdelnour. Mark Skousen Editor, Forecasts & Strategies Author, The Maxims of Wall Street (Authored over 20 other books on economics)
  2. Martin Pazzani
    The Financial Policy Council that Ziad Abdelnour has assembled is a much-needed think tank of free enterprise capitalism and a forum for solving many of the economic, cultural and political problems we face. Ziad’s leadership is both visionary and inspirational, and the council meetings feature a wide-range of the world’s leading experts sharing their insights to an active, involved, and hyper-productive audience. It adds tremendous value to my efforts to stay informed, productive, and focused on the future. Martin Pazzani Entrepreneur, Founder/CEO Act!vate Brain & Body Inc.
  3. Astrid F. Kowlessar
    The Financial Policy Council under the auspices of Ziad K. Abdelnour has true decision making clout to help develop a stronger regulatory framework for both private and public sector policy formation with an international dimension. This caliber of financial engineering is sorely needed in this time of market and of governance volatility. I have been closely privy to great insight from the Financial Policy Council, and boldly endorse the thought leadership, education and expertise that this institution provides. Astrid F. Kowlessar Director - Business & Project Strategy, Vezta Triumph Ltd.
  4. Wayne Allyn Root
    The Financial Policy Council is a truly unique organization which I've grown to respect over the years. Not only do they perform timely and accurate research on key policy issues and effectively market these findings to the nation's powerbrokers and news media, but they are truly independent in their approach- they are not funded by any interest group. Most importantly, being comprised of people with real world experience in the trenches of business and entrepreneurship, with deep knowledge of the financial services sector, makes a huge difference between being intellectual and academic, versus being IMPACTFUL. FPC is impactful. I applaud my good friend Ziad Abdelnour for leading the efforts in creating a first class organization of smart, knowledgeable and high-profile financial leaders. I can't wait to see what the future holds for FPC. I hope to be a small part of it. Wayne Allyn Root Former Libertarian Vice Presidential nominee International Business Speaker & Author of "The Power of RELENTLESS"
  5. Shan Saeed
    I am honoured to be connected with Ziad Abdelnour and his think tank the Financial Policy Council. I have learned so much from his vast knowledge, experience and global expertise. The work he is sharing at FPC is absolutely brilliant. As a matter of fact, I always check their work every day and before speaking at any networking event in Asia Pacific. I am making my new corporate profile video and credentials update according to Ziad's structure. What an enlightenment. I absolutely admire and respect the gentleman for his integrity and impeccable character. Shan Saeed Chief Economist / Investment Strategist - IQI Group Sbn Bhd Malaysia
  6. Lulu Wang
    The Financial Policy Council is an excellent forum to hear about most relevant topics on the economy, business, and policies. It attracts great people and they come here to exchange ideas freely. Ziad Abdelnour is an outstanding networker and amazingly adept at lining up industry experts who have deep knowledge and speak their minds. He is a model of such a speaker himself. Lulu Wang Senior Manager - American Express
  7. Kevin Dunn
    The Financial Policy Council is a necessary and powerful group of entrepreneurs who serve an extremely important role in helping small to mid-sized companies create wealth and opportunity for themselves and their families as well as influencing the next generation of business builders. It has been a distinct privilege of mine to partner with Ziad Abdelnour and the FPC. His leadership has been uniquely inspiring to me and I admire the way he has always presented topical and tough issues to deliberate and ultimately find solutions to in the FPC events. Kevin Dunn CEO, CEO Clubs
  8. G. Chris Andersen
    Great organization with lots of insight. I continue to attend the Financial Policy Council events because my friend Ziad Abdelnour always finds outstanding speakers of interest who push the envelope in addition to the fact that his attendees are truly knowledgeable people worth engaging in conversational debates. G. Chris Andersen Founding Partner, G.C. Andersen Partners, LLC
  9. Anthony Sages
    I have been attending FPC meetings for more than four years. I find the members and guest speakers to be the finest in their respective fields. If someone is looking for a typical market/political commentary or speech, you will not find it at FPC. Instead, you’ll experience the political incorrectness of the truth about the challenges facing the global economy and the US economy. I find every meeting to be thought provoking, yet grounded in irrefutable fact. The forum is open to differing opinions and encourages attendees to think outside the conventional CNBC talk. I look forward to my continued attendance. On a lighter note, FPC's Chairman Ziad Abdelnour keeps the pace fast, interesting and no one gets a free pass without backing his/her opinion with tangible facts. Anthony Sages Sr. Executive Vice President, National Division, AXA Advisors, LLC
  10. Joy Schoffler
    What impresses me most about the Financial Policy Council and its members is the level of interest in new and innovative financial policy and the technologies, enabling change. While their meetings are attended by the old guard of Wall Street, these are not your typical investment bankers and Wall Street insiders. These are people that are looking forward seeing the opportunities of tomorrow, making sure their organizations stay ahead of the curve from both a policy and technology prospective. Joy Schoffler Crowdfund Intermediary Regulatory Advocates Board Member (CfIRA) Principal of Financial Technology PR Firm, Leverage PR
  11. Renato Tichauer
    Outstanding organization with insight second to none. I have to thank its Chairman Ziad Abdelnour, an absolutely amazing maverick who uses his powerful and assertive arguments to transmit his wide knowledge in American and world financial and political subjects to his audience at the Financial Policy Council. Outstanding speakers as well with totally "out of the box" perspectives about the economy, politics and risks that may affect everybody's lives. Renato Tichauer CEO, Tremond Metals Corp.
  12. Charlotte Lei
    The Financial Policy Council is one of the most influential nonprofit organizations I’ve ever seen. I am constantly surprised by the great speeches given each quarter on this platform. The well-known guest speakers include economists, entrepreneurs, and important former government officials. They focus on the important political and financial concerns both American and global societies face today. They address these issues pragmatically and present realistic solutions. They avoid the tendency of many self-important speakers to offer theoretical ideas that might lack persuasiveness. Ziad K. Abdelnour, Founder and Chairman of the Financial Policy Council, has a charismatic personality. He possesses the vision and the backbone to strengthen the organization and brings to it a depth of experience in private equity, investment banking, and political activism. He has a unique ability to present innovative ideas that lead to successful actions. The Financial Policy Council is an increasingly influential group that contributes substantially to the national dialogue on the critical issues that face the country and the world. Charlotte Lei Family Office Administrator of PCM Management LLC II
  13. Leslie Wright
    Without a doubt, a rare & consummate gentleman. Ziad Abdelnour stands out among the great modern day financiers. He possesses an extreme grasp on the intersection of financial policy, government politics & the global economy. His desire to share his knowledge and be a substantial global influencer is impressive. His energy and passion is inspiring. I would welcome the opportunity to network, partner or mentor with Ziad Abdelnour and the Financial Policy Council anytime. Leslie Wright Vice President, Real Estate Development at The Privada Group
  14. S Hojgaard-Sorensen
    Ziad Abdelnour is one of those unfortunately, rare individuals who fits the profile put forward by Mr. J.P. Getty in his book 'How to Be Rich', - "It has always been my contention that an individual who can be relied upon to be himself and to be honest unto himself can be relied upon in every other way. He places value - not a price - on himself and his principles. And that, in the final analysis, is the measure of anyone's sense of values - and the true worth of any man." Ziad is an inspiration and a true visionary who appears to thrive on the responsibility that greatness brings. In a world short on true leaders he is a beacon. I hope our roads will cross again in the future allowing me the opportunity to gain from his knowledge and expertise and tag along this great organization in the making. S Hojgaard-Sorensen Senior Associate, Librarium Associates Ltd - Zurich, Switzerland
  15. Nicole N. Abdallah
    The Financial Policy Council is a genuine gift to the business and political worlds, both domestically and globally. Mr. Abdelnour is a strong, clear and well spoken leader; with a precise skill at successful execution in each endeavor he chooses. Anyone who knows him is blessed on numerous levels to experience who and how he is. Always the best of best wishes to you Ziad and continued success for the Financial Policy Council. Nicole N. Abdallah President and CEO, JND Healthcare Management, Inc.
  16. Stephen Day
    Ziad Abdelnour is a rare combination of visionary and fearless leader who inspires us all. When we think of true Renaissance Men, we think of urbane, educated thought leaders with varied and diverse interests and knowledge....such is Ziad, who is never afraid to express well-considered opinions, to structure complicated capitalization projects, or to capture competitive deals. This is a man who loves America and has loyalty to his homeland, Lebanon. We agree on many issues, disagree on others, but I will always value Ziad's wise counsel and sage advice. We have too few true leaders. We all would be less if Ziad was not in our lives. Ziad Abdelnour is truly a GIFT and the Financial Policy Council is a powerhouse in the making. Stephen Day CEO, Day Capital Partners, Inc
  17. John Esposito
    As a strong supporter of the Financial Policy Council and the noble values it stands for, I cannot but strongly endorse the organization’s board and all what its distinguished members are trying to achieve in today’s arcane world of regulatory finance. We need more people like those courageous “gladiators” both on Wall Street and in the corridors of power in our nation’s capital. John Esposito Tristone Capital Management Inc
