Mindset Weekly

Over the years, we’ve been known for translating Washington for Wall Street—and vice versa. And these days, we’re equipped to navigate complex challenges for nonprofits, startups, and investors, as well as domestic and international corporations across the economy. Our Mindset Weekly zeroes in on key insights and takeaways of note within the sectors we focus on each and every day.

April 10, 2023

The Senate and House are in recess and will return next week. President Biden is traveling to the UK and Ireland Tuesday through Friday to mark the 25th anniversary of the Good Friday accord. We are monitoring for any signs of a potential restart in U.S.-UK trade talks. The SEC meets on Friday to consider reopening the comment period for the proposed amendments to the definition of an “exchange” and Regulation ATS. Several financial agency officials are slated to speak at various events this week, including at the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund spring meetings. Upon returning from recess, we expect the debt limit conversation to heat back up ahead of the current early June “X-Date” deadline, with President Biden pressuring House Republicans to produce an FY23 budget resolution before negotiating with Speaker McCarthy. House Republicans are also looking to advance various border security measures in April which could add to the partisan tone.
