The California Department of Financial Protection and Innovation (DFPI) aspires to be a "premier financial regulator and national model for consumer protection.” Integral to its strategy is the Office of Financial Technology and Innovation (OFTI). The OFTI is designed to serve as a resource for FinTechs, innovators, licensees, consumers, and others who seek meaningful interaction with the DFPI, whether it be related to new products, emerging risks, or other relevant topics.

The DFPI’s approach is likely to influence how other state and federal regulators approach the marketplace. Our discussion with OFTI aims to help the financial services and payments sectors, in California and nationwide, understand the OFTI’s purpose, authority, and resources available to industry. It will also give you the opportunity to provide feedback about how the OFTI can help facilitate responsible innovation for Californians.

We’d like you to be a part of the conversation. When registering for this event, guests will have the opportunity to submit questions anonymously, which our moderator will pose on your behalf, and offer your suggestions for how the OFTI can help facilitate responsible innovation in California.

This session is to be recorded. Please review our privacy policy here. By accepting this invitation, you are providing consent to be recorded.
