Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. will once again host the largest networking event of its kind in the Bronx, the 15th Annual Bronx Bankers Breakfast. The event is produced in partnership with the Business Initiative Corporation of New York and the Bronx Overall Economic Development Corporation (BOEDC).

More than 400 leaders in the fields of banking, business, real estate and tech come together to attend the Business Initiative Corporation (BIC), the largest event of its kind. This year’s keynote speaker will be Benjamin M. Lawsky, New York State’s first Superintendent of Financial Services.

As Superintendent, Lawsky is the supervisor of all Insurance companies in New York, all New York State-chartered depository institutions and the majority of United States-based branches and agencies of foreign banking institutions. He also regulates all of New York State’s mortgage brokers, mortgage bankers, check cashers, money transmitters, budget planners, and similar providers of financial services. Entities supervised by the Department number approximately 4400, with assets of about $6.2 trillion.
