Auto Finance

Auto lending is a dynamic market second only to housing in size, with nearly $900 billion in outstanding auto loan balances. Banks hold approximately a third of all auto loan balances, followed closely by captive auto lenders, credit unions and auto finance companies. Under the Dodd-Frank Act, the CFPB has the authority to supervise all depository institutions with more than $10 billion in assets. However, the Bureau has also been granted the authority to supervise “larger participants” in consumer financial markets. The CFPB exercised this authority by issuing a rulemaking proposal to extend its supervisory reach over nonbank auto lenders, such as the captives and auto finance companies. CBA is largely supportive of this effort as consumers should expect to receive the same level of protection no matter where they receive their auto loans.

    The U.S. market has developed into a world of credit haves and have nots. The “haves” are those who are deemed creditworthy and have credit. The “have nots” are those who do not qualify for credit because their credit history is limited or nonexistent. Nearly 20 percent of U.S. consumers are credit invisible. What can be done to render the unbanked and underbanked visible? Imagine a tool to scour...
