July 21, 2021 marks the 10th anniversary of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) opening for business. The date also represents the 10th anniversary of our blog, Consumer Finance Monitor, which we intentionally launched on the CFPB’s first day. Through the blog, we’ve provided timely updates on significant CFPB developments for the past decade.

In our two-part webinar, we will review the Bureau’s significant initiatives to date and share our thoughts on the Bureau’s likely direction throughout the Biden Administration. In Part I, we will take a close look at the Bureau’s major regulatory initiatives during its first 10 years, how it has responded to the rapid change in technology, and what we expect going forward. Part II will be devoted to supervisory and enforcement activities.

Part I will focus on the Bureau’s completed, pending, and potential regulatory actions dealing with:

  • Mortgage origination and servicing
  • Prepaid cards
  • Debt collection
  • Small dollar lending
  • Overdrafts
  • Small business lending
  • Consumer access to financial information
  • Technology developments and what we expect going forward
  • Arbitration

Part II will focus on the Bureau’s past, ongoing, and potential supervisory and enforcement activities concerning:

  • Supervision of “larger participants,” including the industries that may be future candidates for "larger participant" supervision
  • Fair lending
  • Unfair, deceptive, or abusive acts or practices
  • Credit cards
  • Debt collection
  • Credit reporting
  • Student lending and servicing
  • Mortgage origination and servicing
  • Debt relief
  • Military Lending Act and service member issues

Part I: Monday, July 26, 2021 | 2:00 - 4:00 PM ET

Part II: Tuesday, August 3, 2021 | 12:00 - 1:30 PM ET
