    Financial Regulation with Rob Ellsworth

    Created in response to the Recession, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) was borne of the Dodd-Frank Act, the most significant piece of financial regulation since the Great Depression. Together, the legislation and the agency that it created are supposed to make the financial system safer, but critics claim it is too convoluted to understand, let alone implement. Rob Ellsworth and Chris DiAngelo will explain how the Act came to fruition, what the current state of the CFPB is, and opportunities and challenges in this area going forward.

    Rob Ellsworth has worked for five members of the House and Senate. Most recently, he served as chief of staff to Representative Walt Minnick (D-ID), a member of the Financial Services Committee, at which point he worked closely with the office of Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) to help craft the Dodd-Frank Act.

    During Chris DiAngelo's 30 years of practice, he has served as co-head of the structured finance group for Katten Muchin Rosemann and Dewey & LeBoeuf. He has testified before the U.S. House Committee on Financial Services and frequently appears and provides commentary at industry forums on financial and regulatory matters.
