The Cato Institute announced that it will hold a policy forum in Washington, D.C. on January 17, 2019 at which the topic will be “Promoting Fintech Innovation and Consumer Choice: The Role of Regulatory Sandboxes.”

The forum will feature Paul Watkins, Director of the CFPB’s Office of Innovation at the CFPB.  He is expected to discuss the Bureau’s “BCFP Product Sandbox” proposal and proposed revisions to its no-action letter policy.

Paul was recently our guest for our weekly podcast series.  In the podcast, in addition to responding to our questions about the sandbox proposal and proposed revisions to the NAL policy, Paul also discussed the Bureau’s proposed revisions to its trial disclosure policy.  To listen to the podcast, click here.
