MBA Education Special Purpose National Bank Charters for Fintech Companies Webinar Today

MBA Education hosts a webinar, Special Purpose National Bank Charters for Fintech Companies, today, Mar. 9 from 2:00-3:30 p.m. ET.

In December, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency announced it will begin considering applications for a special-purpose national bank charter from fintech companies. This announcement culminated a lengthy period of consideration by the OCC and discussions with various stakeholders.

This special purpose charter may be an attractive option for residential mortgage lenders who would benefit from a more streamlined supervisory and examination regime (e.g., one primary regulator), exportation of interest rates and certain fees and preemption of certain state lending requirements, including licensing.

–Potential benefits to residential mortgage lenders and other types of technology companies.
–How the special-purpose bank charter can help lower compliance costs, particularly in the areas of licensing and usury.
–Key features of this charter and the related supervisory expectations (including capital requirements and change-of-control approvals).
–Preparing an application and business plan and navigating the chartering process.
–How the new administration, state regulators and Congress may impact the existing current regulatory environment and the special purpose national bank charter.
