The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) recently issued a fact sheet describing its priorities for the next two years and how it plans to achieve those goals. Given the aggressiveness of the CFPB's goals and its desire to "make substantial progress" toward achieving them in the near-term, 2016 and 2017 promise to be years of intensive CFPB activity.

In this webinar, we will take a comprehensive look at what the CFPB's priorities signal about its upcoming activities and offer our predictions for where it is heading on many of its key initiatives.


  • The status of rules involving prepaid cards, debt collection, payday and deposit advance loans, overdraft fees, and arbitration
  • The identification of installment lenders for "larger participant" supervision
  • The expected areas of focus in student lending and mortgage lending
  • The growing interest in small business lending
  • Expectations for supervisory and enforcement activity, including continued fair lending focus in auto finance
