OCC sued over fintech charter
The New York Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) has brought another lawsuit against the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) challenging its national charter for fintech companies. In July, the OCC issued its framework to begin accepting fintech charter applications.
The NYDFS previously sued the OCC over its authority to offer a charter for fintech firms; that suit was dismissed in December for lack of standing because the OCC had yet to finalize or issue any charters. Another lawsuit brought by the Conference of State Bank Supervisors was dismissed earlier this year for the same reason.
In the new complaint, NYDFS argues that the OCC's fintech policy related to internet-based financial startups is "lawless, ill-conceived, and destabilizing of financial markets that are properly and most effectively regulated by New York state."
The OCC's new charter establishes a first of its kind regulatory framework for fintech companies and addresses many of NAFCU’s recommendations regarding fintech supervision.
NAFCU agrees that fintech produces real benefits to consumers, but any company engaged in core banking functions should be regulated the same way as credit unions. The association continues to support a fair playing field so credit unions have as many opportunities as banks and non-regulated entities as part of its 2018 priorities.

This often-overlooked operational area is at the crossroads of member service, compliance risk, and soundness. These factors make it the new target for enterprising attorneys creating a continual need for credit unions to constantly look for ways to improve their performance while limiting risk. Most credit unions rely on third-party vendors such as law firms, repossession companies, and software companies to help attain their goals. It has always been a challenge to effectively manage our vendors in order to maintain the better end of the bargain. But general performance, recovery rates, privacy, and security are no longer your only vendor concerns. Under the broad scope of the current laws, you can be held liable for compliance violations committed by your vendors! What does your contract say about this? How are you monitoring and measuring the risk? Join credit union collections veteran David Reed as he lays out a workable balance between maximizing recoveries and reducing third party risks and walks you through well tested best practices for your collections and vendor management teams.
