Financial Innovation & Regulation - Finding the Balance

Webcast with Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP

Over the past two years, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, along with other federal financial regulators, has intensified its efforts to better understand innovation in the financial services industry. They have worked to develop policies aimed to foster continuing innovation and reducing regulatory uncertainty.  These policies – which authorize product and disclosure sandboxes, no-action letters, and advisory opinions, among other items – provide both traditional banks and credit unions, as well as FinTech companies, opportunities to test new products and services under defined conditions without fear of legal liability.  

Join Guidehouse and Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP for an in-depth discussion with the leaders from the CFPB Office of Innovation as they provide an overview of the policies and how they’ve been implemented. Pillsbury attorneys and Guidehouse partner, Alma Angotti will provide insights about how their financial services clients can utilize these policies for their benefit and ensure compliance.  

This is the first in a series of webinars Pillsbury and Guidehouse are hosting in late 2020 and early 2021 examining the state of play in financial services policy, how it might change, and how companies should respond
