Bank Enforcement Actions—Roundtable With the Experts: New Issues, Higher Penalties, Joint Enforcement Actions
|Date / Time:
While the number of federal enforcement actions has decreased from the height of the financial crisis, they still remain significantly high in historical terms. Moreover, penalties against banks have continued to increase.
Dodd-Frank requirements and capital dominated the issues scrutinized in recent enforcement actions, along with consumer protection issues, AML/OFAC policies, and bank soundness and safety policies.
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has commenced enforcement activity well as joined other agencies in joint enforcement actions in 2014. The CFPB’s aggressive stance against banks and non-banks will not abate any time soon.
Listen as our authoritative panel of banking practitioners with more than 130 years of experience evaluates current issues and defenses in bank enforcement actions and predicts what we can expect to see in the near future.
- DOJ’s use of 12 USC 1833(a)
- Impact and defense of project choke point
- The complications of criminal prosecutions
- Defending multiple actions
- Current consumer protection issues
- Anti-money laundering and OFAC policies
- Holding company, capital and stress test issues
- Fair lending challenges
- Enforcement focus on directors and officers
The panel will review these and other key questions:
- What issues have been the focus of OCC, FDIC and Federal Reserve actions?
- Where has the CFPB been focusing its enforcement efforts?
- What trends can we expect to see for the remainder of 2014 and into 2015?
