Having previously worked closely with CFPB Director Chopra while he served as the CFPB’s Acting Director and its first Deputy Director, Mr. Date provides a unique perspective on Mr. Chopra’s views and likely actions as CFPB Director. We discuss how the CFPB is likely to approach key areas under Mr. Chopra’s leadership, including fair lending and digital redlining, technology/fintech, and mortgage lending and servicing. We also discuss whether Director Chopra will revisit CFPB rulemaking for small-dollar lending, debt collection, or arbitration.
