Why You Should Call In

With the recent appointment of Richard Cordray as its Director, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has accelerated implementation of its statutory mission, issuing a multitude of notices and releases and holding a of number Town Halls on a variety of topics. What is clear is that the CFPB under Cordray will take seriously its mission to protect the rights of consumers of financial products consistent with the philosophy espoused by Elizabeth Warren--a mission that has stirred up considerable controversy in the financial services industry.

In this one-hour TeleBriefing, our distinguished panel will consider the implications of Richard Cordray's appointment as Director of the CFPB and the practical business ramifications of the CFPB's policies going forward. In particular, panelists will consider the impact on banks and and how banks will conduct business, increase their compliance efforts and change their business practices in light of heightened regulatory activity at the CFPB. The panelists will also address the impact on non-bank providers of financial services, especially mortgage servicers; the likely effect of the CFPB's February 2012 proposed "larger participant" rule; and the nature and extent of the CFPB's cooperation with State Attorneys Generals as an enforcement arm and what this means for information disclosure.

Join us for a timely and informative hour for anyone in the mortgage serving, check-cashing, and traditional banking sectors.
