Washington, D.C. (May 12, 2015) – Richard Hunt, President and CEO of the Consumer Bankers Association (CBA), issued the following statement in response to a 2015 Pew report entitled, “Checks and Balances.”

“Consumer choice is paramount in our industry, and CBA believes customers should be able to decide how best to meet their short-term funding needs.  As Pew highlights in its 2015 report, 100% of banks surveyed clearly disclosed overdraft fees.  We will continue to work with Pew and others to ensure consumers are informed when making their individual financial decisions,” said CBA’s President and CEO Richard Hunt.
