Presented by Lexology and Pepper Hamilton
The ever-expanding range of relationships between fintechs and banks has been on the radar screen of U.S. federal banking regulators for some time. In October 2016, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency created an Office of Innovation for the purposes of facilitating and monitoring such relationships, while the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation recently announced plans to establish a similar office. Despite this attention, the federal banking laws and regulations consistently lag behind what is needed to allow these relationships to flourish and grow to their full potential.
In this webinar, we will review how innovation is unfolding across the financial services industry, focusing on recent developments involving banks, fintechs, and fintechs that want to become banks, highlighting the impediments that exist under existing law – including efforts by some states to thwart innovation – and looking at how the fintech industry will develop in 2019.
