Please join Davis Polk and Autonomous Research for a discussion about the OCC’s special-purpose national bank charter, which we previously described in our memo. A wide range of investors and business models should understand the potential impact of the new charter, including:

  • Payments companies
  • Virtual currency companies
  • Non-bank and marketplace lenders
  • Prepaid and other card companies
  • Retailers
  • Exchange, clearing and settlement companies
  • U.S. and foreign banking organizations
  • Consumer-facing technology and financial companies
  • Industrial loan companies

Autonomous Research, a global research firm focused on financial firms and Fintech innovation, will join the conversation to provide context regarding growth-stage technology companies and financial incumbents. Together, we will cover:

  • Pros and cons of the charter
  • Chartering process, including regulatory expectations and estimated cost of compliance
  • Comparison to international regulators’ fintech efforts
  • Analysis of the opportunities and challenges of the charter for each of the business models listed above
  • Implications for systemic innovation and global fintech competitiveness
