Director of CFPB, Richard Cordray, Provides Thoughts on Fintech Innovation

In a speech last week to the US Chamber of Commerce, CFPB Richard Cordray provided thoughts geared towards fintech companies stating, “One message we are sending to the industry is, you are not going to be able to take advantage through arbitrage of our regulatory system. It’s not fair for you to not have to meet the same expectations that banks have to meet. If you’re trying to get an advantage by not meeting the same standards, that is not acceptable and we’re trying to send that message loud and clear.”; Cordray also spoke on finding the right balance of fintech regulation, modernizing regulations and the Bureau’s look at debt collectors and payday lenders.  Source
