Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) Director Richard Cordray delivered prepared remarks during the National Consumer Law Center Conference in Seattle yesterday. Cordray discussed several of the CFPB’s efforts to “improve the daily lives and financial opportunities for consumers,” including its supervision of consumer debt collectors and its new mortgage servicing standards. Cordray highlighted the bureau’s efforts to increase the transparency of the private student loan industry and also described how it is beginning to penalize those who “violate the law and cause meaningful consumer harm.” For more, read Director Cordray’s prepared remarks.
