COVID-19 Accelerates Financial Technology Innovation

Loeb & Loeb LLP is proud to present a webinar titled “COVID-19 Accelerates Financial Technology Innovation”. This webinar was presented live on October 14, and can be viewed on-demand by clicking here.

About the event:
The COVID-19 pandemic hit the financial technology industry with a one-two punch: first the immediate economic and business challenges from the global shutdown, and now the uncertainty that continues to ripple through the economy. If there is a silver lining, it can be found in the new, innovative solutions the industry is developing to navigate the economic realities of the pandemic and changes in consumer behavior.

Stephen Aschettino, chair of Loeb’s Payments Technology practice, and partner Mercedes Tunstall will explore how fintech is rising to unprecedented challenges and how the evolving regulatory landscape is impacting the industry. Our discussion will include:

• An overview of the increased demand for contactless payments, how fintech has responded to the pandemic and the road ahead
• Rethinking lending and credit products
• Regulatory updates from Washington, DC, including: The impact on the industry of the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent decision on the constitutionality of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), the efforts by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) to regulate fintech through its charter program and thoughts on the impact of the election.
