Our special guest is Ian Moloney, Senior Vice President and Head of Policy and Regulatory Affairs with the American Fintech Council (AFC).  After reviewing how EWA products are used by consumers and the differences between employer- and provider-based products, we discuss the regulatory challenges faced by the EWA industry, the regulatory approaches states have taken to EWA, actions taken by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau related to EWA, and proposed federal legislation dealing with EWA.  We conclude with a discussion of AFC’s letter to the Bureau urging the Bureau to develop a regulatory approach to EWA.

Alan Kaplinsky, Senior Counsel in Ballard Spahr’s Consumer Financial Services Group, leads the discussion, joined by Michael Guerrero, a Partner in the Group and Co-Leader of the firm’s Fintech and Payments Solutions Team.
