Businesses played a vital role in Friday’s 5-4 Supreme Court decision to legalize same-sex marriage nationwide, with 379 corporations and employer organizations submitting an amicus brief in support of striking down state bans. Some of the financial services firms that submitted include Bank of America, BlackRock, Capital One Financial Corporation, Morgan Stanley and Wells Fargo.
Many firms and advisors showed their support for the ruling on Twitter Friday. Here are some of the top industry tweets following the decision:
