Modern-day NAFTA must account for modern financial services firms

, With a 90-day notification to Congress, which would allow negotiations to begin this summer.  

SIFMA has made the four recommendations for negotiators to ensure that American financial firms have the maximum opportunity to generate trade and growth through competition based on a level playing field:  

Expand the free flow of goods and services

U.S., Canadian and Mexican financial services institutions should continue to enjoy each other’s economies by maintaining and expanding the existing market access.

Federal agency seeks penalties against Mississippi lender

A federal agency wants more penalties against a Mississippi payday lender and has asked a judge to order the company and its owner to pay back $8.3 million in profits and revenues.

In court papers filed Friday, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau alleged All American Check Cashing Inc. and sole owner Michael Gray hid check-cashing fee schedules, misled people into taking out costlier loans, and wrongly kept consumer overpayments.

The company said it disagrees “with most, if not all, of what” the CFPB is claiming, All American’s lawyer, Michael Cory, wrote in an email Monday. “But until we have a chance to review the filing closely, we can’t comment further except to say that we will file an appropriate response.”

The bureau asks U.S. Magistrate Judge John C. Gargiulo to rule before trial, saying no facts are in dispute. It also wants Gargiulo to ban Gray from ever working in financial services again and to assess additional “significant” fines, beyond repayments. Federal officials say Gray collected $13.5 million in income from 2011 to 2017, in addition to putting his wife and young children on the payroll.
