RegFi Episode 26: Addressing the Regulation of Electronic Transactions in the Digital Economy | Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP

Navigating Electronic Transactions: Financial Institutions and Regulatory Frameworks

Financial institutions need to understand the regulatory frameworks that impact electronic records and signatures in the origination and servicing of financial products. In a recent conversation, Orrick Partner Edward Somers, along with Jerry Buckley and Sherry Safchuk, discussed the importance of laws such as the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (UETA), the federal E-Sign Act, and various state laws in enabling electronic transactions. They also addressed the increasing regulatory focus on “dark patterns” in website and mobile app designs by the CFPB and FTC.

The group emphasized that financial institutions must stay informed about regulatory changes and advancements in technology to mitigate risks and ensure compliance. The potential for AI tools to enhance consumer experiences and improve the understanding of financial products and transactions was also highlighted. By leveraging AI technology, financial institutions can streamline processes and provide more personalized and efficient services to their clients.

Financial institutions need to navigate the complexities of digital transactions while ensuring security and convenience for their customers. Staying ahead of the curve is essential in this rapidly evolving landscape.
