WASHINGTON, D.C. (February 4, 2014) – Please join Shareholder Respect, a project founded by Ralph Nader to highlight the mistreatment of shareholders, for a round table discussing the impacts of the conservatorship of government sponsored enterprises (GSEs), such as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. GSE reform will have an impact on shareholders, homeowners, industry stakeholders, and the broader economy. With lawmakers on Capitol Hill considering legislation that purports to reform the GSEs, and likely determine the fate of investors in Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, this discussion is both timely and important.
