House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is not the most successful member of Congress in the stock market. That’s likely Rep. Austin Scott, R-Ga., at least according to one viral report. Nor is she the most prolific. That honor probably goes to Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, or fellow Bay Area Rep. Ro Khanna.
Pelosi does not not even technically trade stocks, since her husband Paul owns and runs Financial Leasing Services, a San Francisco-based venture capital firm, and is responsible for all of the trades that Pelosi has to file under the STOCK Act of 2012. (More on that later.)
