financial lawAdvertisers and marketers of consumer financial services have been asking, “What’s next?” As the CFPB works its way through court challenges, and an evolving legal and political landscape unfolds, companies have been waiting for signs from the CFPB, Congress, and the President of what to expect in 2017. Members of Venable’s Consumer Financial Services Practice recently presented “Consumer Financial Services 2017 Outlook: Post-Inauguration Day Insights,” a Venable Webinar.

The webinar reviewed the current state of federal and state consumer financial protection law and policy and discussed what what’s ahead. The speakers share their experiences from the front lines and offer strategies to help companies navigate the evolving legal and regulatory landscape.

Topics covered include:

  • New Congress and president: prospects for reform;
  • Rulemaking updates: small dollar loans, debt collection, arbitration, and more;
  • Innovation and investment opportunities meet regulation;
  • Supervision and examination: lessons learned and preparing for the future; and
  • Recent CFPB, FTC, and high-profile state developments, and what’s next.

This session focused on areas of interest to providers of consumer financial products and services and their service providers, including advertisers, in such markets as student loans, mortgage lending and servicing, auto lending, small dollar lending, consumer reporting, consumer credit and related services, money transmission and check cashing, prepaid cards, debt collection, and debt relief services.
