In this wide-ranging conversation with two experienced reporters on the consumer finance industry, we discuss differences between the current CFPB and the Trump-era CFPB, including with regard to areas of regulatory and enforcement focus such as UDAAP, consumer access to financial information, small business issues, and fair lending. We also discuss the potential implications of the current CFPB’s interest in buy-now-pay-later and its inquiry into large technology companies that offer payment services. Other topics include the potential impact of the recent leadership turmoil at the FDIC and expectations for activity by state regulators and attorneys general.
Alan Kaplinsky, Ballard Spahr Senior Counsel, hosts the conversation.
