FinTech Updates: OCC and Treasury

by BAFT Admin | Jul 31, 2018
Two important developments in U.S. financial services innovation occurred July 31, 2018: (1) The Department of the Treasury issued a long-awaited report on fintech and innovation in the financial system and (2) the OCC announced that it will begin accepting applications for national bank charters from fintech companies engaged in the business of banking.
US Treasury Issues FinTech Report and OCC Moves Forward with FinTech Charter

Two important developments in U.S. financial services innovation occurred July 31, 2018:  (1) The Department of the Treasury issued a long-awaited report on fintech and innovation in the financial system and (2) the OCC announced that it will begin accepting applications for national bank charters from fintech companies engaged in the business of banking. 

The Treasury’s report, entitled “A Financial System that Creates Economic Opportunities:  Nonbank Financials, Fintech, and Innovation,” contains over 80 recommendations designed to facilitate U.S. firm innovation by streamlining and refining the regulatory environment. These improvements should enable U.S. firms to more rapidly adopt competitive technologies, safeguard consumer data, and operate with greater regulatory efficiency. 

Many of BAFT’s advocacy positions regarding innovation are reflected in the Treasury’s recommendations, including:

  • Streamlining the regulatory environment to foster innovation and avoid fragmentation;
  • Modernizing regulations for emerging technologies and new financial products, services, and business models; and   
  • Facilitating experimentation by establishing “regulatory sandboxes,” promoting increased engagement by financial regulators, and  encouraging cooperation and alignment between U.S. regulators and their foreign counterparts.   

The OCC’s decision to consider applications for special purpose national bank charters from innovative companies is documented in a policy statement and supplement to the OCC’s “Comptroller’s Licensing Manual.” BAFT supports the OCC’s offering of such charters because they  provide companies with the option to launch on a national scale, and promote innovation, competition, and financial inclusion, while also  ensuring the safety and soundness of the financial system by holding all special purpose national banks to similar standards. 

You may find a copy of the Treasury’s press release, report, and fact sheet here.  You may find a copy of the OCC’s press release, policy statement, and manual here.

    Another aspect of choosing the most valuable assignment help is asking for a sample paper from them and checking their standard of writing. Most assignment writing service providers state that they have the best writers and one can get this proof by checking the sample papers. The content must be relevant and logically arranged. The tone of using the language must be professional, and the paper must reflect that the writer is a skilled and experienced person. By hiring help from reliable assistance providers, students are guaranteed to get the best possible answer to their assignment requirements. Now on getting in touch with experts, students can interact with them directly or by a customer care team. By interacting with best essay helper, students will be able to learn intricate details of writing an impressive write-up. To improve students’ essay submission, many responsible agencies are working day in day out.
