Special Purpose National Bank Charters for #Fintech Companies

Today, Thomas J. Curry, Comptroller of the Currency gave remarks at Georgetown Law School about Special Purpose National Bank Charters for Fintech Companies. You can read the remarks here.

Mr. Curry announced that the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) would move forward with considering applications from financial technology (fintech) companies to become special purpose national banks.

Mr. Curry had this to say, in part:

“Over the past year, no topic in banking and finance has drawn more interest than innovative financial technology, and for good reason. The number of fintech companies in the United States and United Kingdom has ballooned to more than 4,000, and in just five years investment in this sector has grown from $1.8 billion to $24 billion worldwide.

“The OCC published a paper discussing the issues and conditions that the agency will consider in granting special purpose national bank charters.” You can check that paper out here
