Our upcoming webinar with the American Financial Services Association is just a week away! In Regulatory Alphabet Soup: As the CFPB evolves, who’s watching lenders now?, fair lending compliance experts from AFSA and Compli will be discussing one of the industry’s favorite subjects (read that with as much sarcasm as you please): the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
And boy is there a lot to discuss. The past 6 months have been a wild ride for the Bureau, following Richard Cordray’s departure and the rise of his successor: former Congressman Mick Mulvaney, who, lest we forget, once sponsored a bill to eliminate the CFPB. What happens when someone opposed to the existence of an agency is placed in charge of it? We’re seeing that what-if scenario play out in real time, with some interesting consequences: the Federal Trade Commission, state attorneys general, and a veritable alphabet soup of institutions are beginning to step in where the CFPB has stepped away.
Don’t miss this opportunity to hear from seasoned consumer finance analysts at this historical moment:
Meet Our Speakers: Michael Benoit and Brian Larson
Michael Benoit is the man with his finger on the regulatory pulse. Michael has presented alongside Compli during webinars on diverse issues including regulatory investigations, consumer complaints, internal audits, disparate impact, and much more. As Chairman of Hudson Cook, he provides legal advice on wide range of consumer financial services law topics, and represents clients in investigation and enforcement matters involving the FTC, the CFPB, state AGs, and other regulators on lenders’ radars.
