CFPB to meet on larger participant definition
WASHINGTON (6/24/11)--The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has announced it will meet with stakeholders July 8 to work on a definition of what non-depository institution “larger participants” in the financial services market should fall under the bureau’s purview. With its 90-minute meeting, to begin at 8:30 a.m. (ET), the CFPB intends to gather information on setting the parameters of it’s regulation of non-bank/non-credit union financial entities--and identifying what types of entities should be subject to CFPB examination. The Credit Union National Association (CUNA) will participate in those discussions. Under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, the CFPB is authorized to supervise all sizes of nonbank payday lenders, private student lenders, and mortgage companies. For other nonbank markets for consumer financial products and services, the Act generally provides authority to supervise “a larger participant”, and requires the CFPB to define such “larger participants.” Dodd-Frank requires that the CFPB issue an initial rule on this subject no later than July 21, 2012, one year after the designated transfer date.
