Richard Cordray’s first year as Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau was extremely active on many different fronts. Under his stewardship, the CFPB has embarked on unprecedented initiatives that have dramatically changed the face of the consumer financial services industry. This is just the tip of the iceberg. We expect the CFPB’s level of activity to greatly intensify during 2013. In this webinar, we will take a comprehensive look at the CFPB’s accomplishments during 2012 and what to expect during 2013.


  • The avalanche of regulations about to be unleashed regarding residential mortgage origination and servicing
  • Supervisory efforts of the CFPB, including the examinations of large banks, nonbank mortgage lenders and servicers, payday lenders, student loan providers, consumer reporting agencies, and debt collection companies
  • Enforcement efforts of the CFPB, including its first three consent orders relating to credit card “add-on” products and other practices
  • The CFPB’s focus on fair lending and disparate impact
  • The CFPB’s focus on third-party service providers
  • The status of the CFPB’s arbitration study
  • Which industries will next be subject to supervision under future “large participant” rules
