The Comptroller will share his perspective on issues related to granting special purpose national bank charters to financial technology companies that provide bank services and products.

The discussion continues work by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency to support responsible innovation in the federal banking system to enhance safe and sound bank operations, increase financial inclusion, and promote fair treatment of customers.”

Current Financial Technology companies include, Prosper, Lending Club, SoFi, PayPal, Square, Stripe, GoFundMe, Kickstarter, NerdWallet, Credit Karma, Betterment, and Yodlee. Here is a ranking of the top FinTech companies by the New York Times.
