"Unexpected Opposition Imperils Federal Reserve Nominee" by Binyamin Appelbaum.


Ian Kats was quoted in Binyamin Appelbaum's New York Times article, "Unexpected Opposition Imperils Federal Reserve Nominee," published on February 9th, 2018. 

The article reads:

“Three is really thin,” said Ian Katz, a financial policy analyst at Capital Alpha Partners, a research firm for investors.

Mr. Katz noted that the Fed under its new chairman, Jerome H. Powell, was conducting a wide-ranging review of regulations, part of the Trump administration’s effort to give greater leeway to financial institutions. It also must wrestle with the implications of recent financial market volatility.

“Fed governors have even more on their plates and minds than just a week ago,” he said.

"'Too Big to Fail' Label May Shrink for Some Firms Under Trump" by Victoria Finkle


Ian Katz was quoted in Victoria Finkle's NYT article, "'Too Big to Fail' Label May Shrink for Some Firms Under Trump," published on September 4, 2017.

The article reads:

“I really do expect them to be — in some way, shape or form — skeptical of the whole designations process,” Ian Katz, a financial policy analyst with Capital Alpha Partners, said of Trump administration officials. “I think they’re going to be skeptical of the way it was done in the past and I think they’re going to be skeptical of the necessity to use it in the future.”
