CFPB: Defining "Larger Participant"


On June 29, 2011, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) issued a request for comments regarding the requirement to implement a program to supervise certain nondepository covered persons for compliance with Federal consumer financial laws.

Three Essential Questions and Submit Comments to the CFPB.

Under Dodd-Frank, the CFPB's non-bank supervision program will be able to look at companies of all sizes in the mortgage, payday lending, and private student lending markets. For all other markets - such as consumer installment loans, money transmitting, and debt collection - the CFPB generally can supervise non-banks only if they are larger participants in these markets.

Markets: Debt Collection; Consumer Reporting; Consumer Credit and Related Activities; Money Transmitting, Check Cashing, and Related Activities; Prepaid Cards; and, Debt Relief Services.
