The CFPB today announced that it will open a new Office of Competition and Innovation. This new office will replace the bureau’s existing Office of Innovation, which was established in 2018 and focused on allowing companies to apply for no-action letters and regulatory sandboxes in order to test specific innovative product offerings.


The CFPB is examining the effects of a concentrated core platform marketplace on consumers and banks, CFPB Director Rohit Chopra said today. Speaking to the bureau’s community bank and credit union advisory councils, Chopra said he is “concerned that the core services providers that small players rely on have too much power in the system.”
