Lunt to Explain CFPB’s Effect on F&I Products


LAS VEGAS — The organizers of the annual P&A Leadership Summit have announced that The Warranty Group’s Aaron Lunt has agreed to brief attendees on the actions undertaken by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) at the 2015 event, which is scheduled for Sept. 9–10 at Paris Las Vegas.

“We wanted to invite Aaron as a legal expert to give a CFPB update as it relates to the ‘I’ side of ‘F&I,’” said David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of F&I and Showroom and P&A magazines. “We are grateful he accepted and we anticipate a gripping address.”

Lunt serves as assistant general counsel and head of regulatory affairs for The Warranty Group and its wholly-owned insurance subsidiary, Virginia Surety Company Inc. He also appeared as a panelist at the recent Compliance Summit Midwest in Chicago. His presentation, “The CFPB’s Impact on the F&I Industry,” is expected to include a clear explanation of the agency’s mission and scope, a summary of its activities and their effect on dealership F&I offices, and a glimpse into what the future might hold.

“Attendees can expect to walk away with a greater understanding of the CFPB, what actions they have taken to date and how the F&I industry may be impacted going forward,” says Lunt.
