  • Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband is making massive stock trades as Congress mulls whether to ban lawmakers and their spouses from trading.

  • An Insider analysis estimated the Pelosis' cumulative wealth at at least $46.1 million.

  • Insider compiled each of Paul Pelosi's trades that the speaker has reported since 2021.

As members of Congress debate whether lawmakers and their spouses should play the stock market, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband, Paul Pelosi, a venture capitalist, continues to regularly buy and sell stocks and stock options.

Pelosi has access to confidential intelligence and the power to affect — with words or actions — the fortunes of companies in which her husband invests and trades.

When asked in December 2021 whether members of Congress should even be allowed to trade stocks, Pelosi answered in the affirmative.

"We are a free-market economy. They should be able to participate in that," she said.

This led some of her colleagues, on both the left and the right, to sharply criticize her — and draft legislation to restrict members of Congress and their spouses from trading stocks.

"Year after year, politicians somehow manage to outperform the market, buying and selling millions in stocks of companies they're supposed to be regulating," Republican Sen. Josh Hawley said. "Wall Street and Big Tech work hand-in-hand with elected officials to enrich each other at the expense of the country. Here's something we can do: ban all members of Congress from trading stocks and force those who do to pay their proceeds back to the American people. It's time to stop turning a blind eye to Washington profiteering."

Sen. Jon Ossoff, a Democrat, introduced a similar bill alongside Sen. Mark Kelly with the intent to ban members of Congress and their families from trading stocks.

"Members of Congress should not be playing the stock market while we make federal policy and have extraordinary access to confidential information," Ossoff said.

On July 21, Pelosi denied that her husband uses information she provides to make stock trades, and she has softened her stance on a congressional stock-trade ban.

In September, Pelosi backed a bill House Democratic leadership advanced that would ban various government officials, including members of Congress, from trading individual stocks. But many government reform groups panned this legislation, and the fate of a congressional stock-trade ban in general remains unclear.

On November 17, 2022, Pelosi announced her plan to step down from her leadership role after 19 years of leading House Democrats. In 2018, she announced her plan to step down as Democratic leader by the end of 2022.

She said she will, however, remain a member of Congress, having easily won re-election in November 2022.

Paul Pelosi has endured a turbulent and tragic 2022: he pleaded guilty to a DUI charge in August, and he is now recovering from head injuries he sustained after being attacked with a hammer in the Pelosis' home in October.

A previous analysis from Insider estimated that the Pelosis are worth at least $46,123,051, making Nancy Pelosi one of the 25 richest members of Congress. The vast majority of the couple's wealth is derived from stocks, options, and investments made by Paul Pelosi.

Methodology note: In 2012, Congress passed the Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge (STOCK) Act to combat insider trading and conflicts of interest to bring more transparency to lawmakers' financial dealings.

Per the STOCK Act, members of Congress are required to file financial disclosures within 45 days of making a trade, doing so in a certified congressional document known as a periodic transaction report. Insider collected and analyzed the trades listed in each of Pelosi's periodic transaction reports submitted since 2021.

Federal lawmakers are required to report stock trades made by themselves, their spouses, and their dependent children. But they are only required to list the value of reported trades in broad ranges.
