Amy Friend, Senior Advisor at FS Vector, has had a storied career in Washington. Starting as a junior House staffer she went on to become Chief Counsel for the Senate Banking Committee during the financial crisis, overseeing the crafting, negotiation, and passage of the Dodd Frank Act.
Later, she would become Senior Deputy Comptroller and Chief Counsel at the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) where she led the agency’s innovation work, including the creation of the Special Purpose National Bank charter for fintech companies.
This week she speaks with FS Vector Partner John Collins about her second run at the OCC. We talk in depth about the Fintech charter, why it’s important and what sort of companies should be considering it. We also discuss what Amy’s been up to since leaving the OCC, what she’ll be working on here at FS Vector, and what the techiest thing about her is.
