Raj Date, who replaced Elizabeth Warren as acting head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau on Aug. 1, will offer a keynote speech, and take questions from the audience, at American Banker's Regulatory Symposium in Washington on Sept. 20.
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has a far-reaching mandate to regulate the financial services industry. Currently leading that effort is Date, a former banker who has worked at Deutsche Bank Securities and Capital One Financial Corp.
The first-ever American Banker Regulatory Symposium is shaping up as a thought-leadership event in which regulators, lawmakers and bankers will come together to discuss the state of financial services regulatory reform, implementation plans, and the effect that new regulations are having on the industry and the economy.
Also speaking at the conference are Martin Gruenberg, acting chairman of the FDIC; John Walsh, acting Comptroller of the Currency; Thomas Hoenig, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City; Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., ranking member of the House Financial Services Committee; Sen. Jack Reed, D-R.I., chairman of the Senate Banking Subcommittee; and Rep. Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va., who serves on the house financial services committee.
Regulators and lawmakers will be joined at the podium by some of the industry's most outspoken CEOs on the regulatory topics, including Robert Wilmers, chairman and CEO of M&T Bank and Harris Simmons, chairman, president and CEO of Zions Bancorp and Albert Kelly, CEO of Spirit Bank.
