Thomas Curry, Comptroller of the Currency, gave more insight on the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency’s (OCC) plans for fintech regulation at a banking and innovation conference in London; Curry reported that regulation would be consistent with current banking standards, noting in his comments that, “if the OCC decides to grant a national charter in this area, the institution will be held to the same high standards of safety, soundness and fairness that other federally chartered institutions must meet”; the OCC is continuing with its plans for an Innovation Office and Curry said he would be releasing a white paper on fintech innovation.  Source
