Finance-data lobbyist launches new shop

Posted by Keturah Hetrick on Nov. 29, 2017

A new lobbying shop specializing in finance has officially launched, disclosing its inaugural pair of clients this week.

Allon Advocacy was started by Steve Boms, who left his lobbying gig at Yodlee, a financial-data company, earlier this month. Boms has also spent time as a lobbyist for Capital One and the International Securities Exchange, as well as legislative director to ex-Rep. Gary Ackerman (D-N.Y.).

So far, Boms' new firm has secured lobbying contracts with Yodlee and the Freedom Financial Network, working on a number of finance, banking and tax issues.

The fledgling company says it also plans to extend its lobbying work to statehouses and into Europe.
