Regulation & Innovation in California

The California Department of Financial Protection and Innovation (DFPI) officially launched in 2021. Already dubbed the “mini-CFPB,” on this episode, Dara speaks with two experts and California natives – Mark Naiman, a member of the DFPI’s advisory board and financial services professional and Lauren Valenzuela, regulatory counsel at Actuate Law. We discuss the vision for the DFPI, who they are regulating, what they are innovating, developments over the past year, and what it’s going to be like for businesses who operate in California in the future.
