Across rural America and in the nation’s urban centers, there is a little-known barrier to economic growth and personal prosperity that is preventing millions of people from achieving financial independence and building personal prosperity.

Many people are “unbanked” and do not have a bank account, while others are “under-banked” and must use alternative financial services such as money orders, check cashing services and loans payday rather than traditional loans and credit cards to manage their finances and funds. purchases. Both situations prevent millions of people across the country from having personal financial stability and harm our overall economic growth.

Despite significant progress over the past decade toward reducing the number of underbanked and unbanked people in the United States, there is a growing bipartisan consensus that now is the time to redouble efforts toward a true financial inclusion. Financial inclusion must go beyond the banking sector to have a tangible impact on the financial lives of Americans. Financial inclusion means that individuals and businesses have equitable access to affordable financial products and services to meet their payment, savings, credit and insurance needs.

That’s why more than 110 businesses, trade and consumer groups have joined the Aspen Institute’s Financial Security Agenda, calling for a national financial inclusion strategy to deliver better financial outcomes for everyone. everyone, regardless of postcode. This unprecedented coalition brings together a large number of diverse entities advocating for a national financial inclusion strategy. It represents the full range of sectors and policies that need to be addressed as part of a coherent approach.

For too long, the United States has taken a piecemeal approach to financial inclusion. Federal agencies, financial institutions, community organizations, and advocacy groups have led significant individual initiatives to address the lack of inclusive financial systems in the United States, but there has been no cohesive strategic effort to address this. very complex problem.

The Biden administration’s executive order making support for racial equity in underserved communities a top priority for federal agencies was a good first step, but data shows more action is needed.

For example, more than 7 million households across the United States are still unbanked and are disproportionately black, Hispanic, Native American, or Alaska Native. Nearly 10% of rural Americans lived in “banking deserts,” compared to 1.7% of urban Americans.

It’s not just rural Americans who are being left behind. In a 2020 report by McKinsey, data reveals that exclusionary policies and strategies — from limited access to federal mortgages to geographic barriers to physical bank branches — have hindered the economic well-being of black people.

In fact, recent research reveals that Black and Latino households account for more than half of the interest and fees on payday loans (22% and 29%, respectively), despite making up less than a third of the population. . A New America report found that financial institutions charge Latino consumers $262 more to open a checking account than their white counterparts.

Research from the International Monetary Fund shows a difference in GDP growth of 2 to 3 percentage points over the long term between financially inclusive countries and their peers. The U.S. lags other countries because it lacks a comprehensive financial inclusion strategy, but a presidential commission can set common goals for federal agencies and the private sector to expand financial inclusion policies. financial inclusion, developing ongoing means of coordinating action among key agencies and organizations, and tracking progress toward building an inclusive financial system in the United States

Organizations from all political and philosophical persuasions have realized that our national failure to create a coordinated strategy to promote financial inclusion is hurting those involved and limiting our financial growth. A recent analysis from multiple sources by McKinsey & Company estimates that promoting financial inclusion could result in 4-6% real GDP growth by 2028.

Solving this unsolvable agenda requires bold leadership across sectors to establish a shared vision of how policies, products and business models can create the inclusive financial systems needed to generate an equitable and sustainable economy.

This recommendation is the culmination of years of research and dialogue with key voices in the financial services industry and those who have been systematically excluded. It’s time to put all Americans on a path to better outcomes and create greater financial security for all.

Ida Rademacher is Vice President of the Aspen Institute and Executive Director of its Financial Security Program.

Experts have raised concerns that cash-strapped public sector workers are turning to controversial purchases now, repaying loans later after being turned down by traditional lenders.

An analysis by the University of Edinburgh found that one in 10 public sector and NHS staff, initially turned down for a more conventional loan on the grounds that they could not afford to repay it, went on to got a buy now, pay later (BPL) credit last year.

The researchers also found that the overall use of BNPL products among public sector employees had “significantly increased” compared to other credits and loans, and was beginning to supplant other non-traditional lenders such as those offering high interest payday loans.

Professor Tina Harrison, from the University of Edinburgh’s business school, warned that the growing use of BNPL – which is still unregulated in the UK – increases the risk that workers in the sector public are in arrears.

“The increase in the use of BNPL, particularly among those with very low financial resilience, is extremely concerning,” she said. “If left unchecked, BNPL has the potential to lead to an unmanageable debt burden very quickly.”

BNPL companies such as Klarna, Clearpay and Laybuy have grown rapidly during the pandemic as online shopping has exploded. Although buyers generally do not pay interest on their purchases, they are still at risk of becoming over-indebted and are not entitled to forbearance or compensation if things go wrong, as these companies are not yet regulated in the Kingdom. -United.

A study published by Barclays Bank and the charity Stepchange in June found that almost a third of BNPL borrowers said their loans had become unmanageable and had pushed them into debt. Shoppers who used these services refunded an average of 4.8 purchases, nearly double February’s 2.6 purchases.

The Edinburgh research analyzed the transactions of 104,661 NHS and public sector workers who applied for a loan from non-profit lender Salad Money but were rejected on the grounds that they were unable to repay .

Salad Money, which commissioned the survey, provides loans exclusively to public sector workers. Analysis of 174 million anonymized bank transactions by public sector workers found that 54% had experienced the return of direct debits – a key indicator of financial hardship.

The head of Responsible Finance – an industry body that oversees the UK’s not-for-profit lenders, known as Community Development Finance Institutions (CDFIs) – said it was “shocking” to see the BNPL approval rate among previous rejected loan applicants.

“How can it make sense that if a responsible lender says ‘no, this loan is not affordable,’ an under-regulated, well-funded tech darling can say yes?” said Theodora Hadjimichael.

The findings were released as part of a report showing many key workers would struggle to pay an unexpected £100 mid-month bill as staff whose transactions were analyzed had, on average, no only £79 in their account at that time. midpoint.

It also found that BNPL users spent more relative to their income and tended to have higher overdrafts, while a significant minority were heavily in debt. Although it is not possible to blame BNPL for these trends, the analysis revealed that its use tended to increase over time.

Making ends meet is much harder today than it was a year ago or before the pandemic.

Soaring inflation at 8.3% is forcing Americans to work harder just to buy less. If you weren’t working with a large income to begin with, the rising costs of essential items robs your quality of life and your ability to progress in America.

That’s why many Americans find the White House’s celebration of the Cut Inflation Act on Tuesday insulting to their plight.

The misleadingly named bill will not slow inflation as confirmed by nonpartisan analysis, but in the short term it could increase it according to Penn Wharton’s budget model. Meanwhile, grocery bills rose 13.5% in August from a year earlier as food prices rose at a rate not seen in 43 years.

Americans need solutions to pay for groceries, haircuts and home heating bills. Right now, Washington is not the source of solutions, but of problems, especially if they enact policies that restrict poor and minority Americans’ access to money when they need it.

Many minorities, especially women, are carving out a better life for themselves and their families while working in lower-paying jobs. Then a pandemic hit. It revealed how vulnerable the (minority) industries in which women tend to concentrate – leisure and hospitality, personal services and retail – were to prolonged shutdowns and an uneven recovery.

Today, there are 1.2 million fewer jobs in leisure and hospitality than before the pandemic began.

Two and a half years later, black and Hispanic families are expected to pull themselves together, but inflationary policies such as President Biden’s US bailout forced real incomes to fall 3.4% last month.

A recent NPR/Harvard poll indicates that due to inflation, black Americans are significantly more likely than whites to report serious financial problems (55% to 38%), are more likely than whites to report not having enough emergency savings for a month of expenses (58% to 36%) and food (32% vs. 21%). No wonder more than half of nonwhite voters (54%) disapprove of the president’s job.

Many non-white families are unbanked and cannot access traditional sources of credit or bank loans for unexpected expenses. An estimated 5.4% of US households (approximately 7.1 million) were unbanked in 2019. These are typically non-Asian minorities, low-income households, less educated households, younger households and households with disabled members who are more likely to be unbanked.

They often rely on short-term installment loans (pejoratively called payday loans) to pay a bill until they receive their paychecks. These products often carry high nominal interest rates at the annual percentage rate (APR).

If not repaid in a timely manner, loans can become very expensive. However, most borrowers repay the original amount borrowed within six months, according to research.

It is common for those who claim to care about the poor to deride the short-term lending industry. Worse still, legislators want to effectively eliminate these financial institutions by imposing arbitrary caps on interest rates. The Senate is considering a national interest rate cap of 36%.

The unintended – or perhaps intended – consequences of rate caps would be to prevent lenders from offering these loans. Higher interest rates reflect the risk of lending to someone with poor or no credit.

As a Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) paper concluded, “fixed operating costs and high loan loss rates justify much of the high APR charged on payday loans.” For the unbanked, these loans are a better option than more expensive and, frankly, more dangerous alternatives.

Amazingly, now even the institutions we trust to weed out scammers and bad businesses have targeted small dollar loans. The Better Business Bureau (BBB) ​​has released a new investigative report into payday loan scams.

Operating in the shadow of a legitimate industry, individuals engage in fraudulent activities by taking advantage of vulnerable people.

The report is correct that the fraud is illegal and should be prosecuted. Unfortunately, the BBB unfairly groups small lenders with scammers as if they were one and the same.

To be clear, most small lenders don’t get an F rating from the BBB, and at least half get an A. But the BBB encourages industry critics and clings to rate cap proposals that would make offering such lending services financially untenable. .

The result would be disastrous, making the situation worse for vulnerable Americans. When Georgia passed a rate cap, borrowers bounced more checks, complained more about lenders and debt collectors, and were more likely to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

Inflation doesn’t go away, so helping unbanked Americans access resources to meet their unexpected needs is critical. This is the message minorities want to hear from the president and national leaders.

Government of Canada consultation on reducing the criminal interest rate https://spectacles17e18e.org/government-of-canada-consultation-on-reducing-the-criminal-interest-rate/ Fri, 09 Sep 2022 19:13:47 +0000 https://spectacles17e18e.org/government-of-canada-consultation-on-reducing-the-criminal-interest-rate/ Authors): Joyce M.

September 9, 2022

Last August, the Government of Canada launched its Advance Consultation Paper (the Consultation Paper) to solicit feedback from stakeholders and vulnerable members of the public on the criminal interest rate and availability of high-cost installment loans often offered by other lenders.

Although the Government of Canada’s policy objective has not yet resulted in a new criminal interest rate, a reduction in the criminal interest rate could have market implications for lenders and borrowers.

Interest rates in Canada must not exceed 60% – section 347 of the Criminal Code

When first introduced in 1980, the criminal interest rate was established to deter loan sharking and other predatory lending practices. Section 347 of the Criminal Code (the Code) makes it an offense to: (1) enter into an agreement or arrangement to receive interest at a rate greater than 60% of the total value of the credit advanced; and (2) actually receive interest in excess of 60% of the total value of the credit advanced. It should be noted that the Code broadly defines the concept of “interest” to include costs, fines, penalties or commissions. Overdraft fees and discharge fees also fall within the scope of what would be considered “interest”. Although the consultation paper discusses high-cost installment loans, it is important to note that some payday loans are exempt from the Code.

High Cost Installment Loans

The consultation paper targets alternative lenders in their offering of what are universally considered “high cost loans” or “high interest” loans. Alternative lenders provide loans quickly with less stringent requirements and offer longer-term, higher-cost installment loans. The consultation document reveals that these installment loans have interest rates of up to 47% per year. With additional fees and charges included, and with frequent compounding interest, many of these installment loans equate to having an overall annual interest rate just below or nearly equal to the criminal interest rate of 60%.

A rate set at 60% for 40 years

The Consultation Document undertakes to better understand the impact that such a rate cut could have on the market and on the availability of financial products as we know them. As the consultation document points out, the criminal interest rate is a fixed rate not linked to market rates. When the criminal interest rate was introduced, the Bank of Canada’s overnight rate was 21%. At that time, the gap between the overnight rate and the criminal rate was 39%. Today, the gap is close to 60%. Thus, the Government of Canada wishes to know whether the interest rate pricing set by other high-cost lenders reflects the actual credit risk of the borrower, or whether the interest rates of these high-cost financial products are fixed simply respect the ceiling authorized by the penal interest rate.

Considerations for Lenders

Responses to the consultation paper are expected by October 7, 2022. Any changes to the criminal interest rate would apply to all credit products in Canada and affect a wide range of borrowing products on the market. If you or your business need help determining the potential impact of a lower criminal interest rate, please do not hesitate to contact the authors of this article.

Greater Manchester constituencies have higher scores on the Financial Vulnerability Index than the UK and North West averages.

Households are struggling with high levels of inflation and soaring bills as part of the cost of living crisis – and new data shows how far Greater Manchester constituencies are doing.

Manchester has seen above-average levels of financial vulnerability since the peak of the Covid-19 pandemic in the summer of 2020 and it has only slightly decreased, according to data experts.

And there are fears that the use of credit will rise sharply in the North West as households try to cope with everything that becomes more expensive.

What is the Financial Vulnerability Index?

The FVI measures a region’s residents’ vulnerability to financial problems and it uses six items to measure this.

This is the percentage of people in an area who are in default, claiming benefits, have high-cost loans, lack emergency savings, and rely on alternative financial products such as loans. on salary.

The sixth measure considered is the average use of credit among residents to determine how dependent they are on it.

Each parliamentary constituency then obtains an overall score between 0 and 100. The higher the score, the more the inhabitants of a territory are financially vulnerable.

The index is a joint project between credit management services company Lowell and the Urban Institute, a US-based research organization,

It is based on anonymised data from approximately 9.5 million Lowell UK customer accounts and other publicly available data sources.

What does the index show for Greater Manchester?

The latest FVI figures show Greater Manchester constituencies are significantly more vulnerable than average.

The UK’s average score is 43.1 and the North West’s is 49.1.

But the latest index gave Blackley and Broughton a score of 60.9, with around 60% of adults in the constituency without emergency savings and more than a quarter in default.

Manchester Gorton has an index of 58.1 and Wythenshawe and Sale East had a Financial Vulnerability Index of 56.9, while Bolton South East it was 56 and Oldham West and Royton it was 55.7 .

At Salford and Eccles it was 53.5, while at Manchester Central it was 53.3.

The latest published figures from the index also show that Manchester has been experiencing above average levels of financial vulnerability since the second quarter of 2020, and since then it has fallen by just 3.1 points.

And like residents of the North West as a whole, credit use in Manchester is increasing as bills rise, with the average credit use in the city reaching 51.9%.

What does the index show for the UK as a whole?

The latest index updates show that across the UK households are resorting to credit as inflation means daily necessities now cost more. Credit usage in the last quarter was the highest since the start of 2020.

Rising interest rates have also done nothing to deter the most financially vulnerable residents from borrowing, which the index creators say proves that for the poorest consumers, having to borrow money is a necessity and not a choice.

There is better news, however, as financial vulnerability in the UK has declined overall since the last index update, which experts say is mainly due to the fall in the share. adults claiming social benefits.

Payday loans across the UK also continued to decline.

What about the latest numbers?

John Pears, UK CEO of Lowell, said: “The cost of living is rising across the board and hitting north west towns like Manchester hard.

“Households have to shell out more money to pay for essentials like food and bills. With the rising cost of living pushing budgets to their limits, people are increasingly turning to credit.

“For many now, a single income shock can be enough to push a household into debt. People need help to cut costs.

“The new government must take action to ensure that households, especially those on the lowest incomes, receive the support they need.

“With the recent changes to the price cap, reducing energy bills must be the priority. This must be at the top of the agenda.

As the November election approaches, Republicans and Democrats in Cass County are planning and hosting events to raise money for their respective candidates and prepare residents to vote.

Cass County Democrats were excited when the Hoosier Promise tour stopped at Amelio’s on the River on Wednesday.

The event featured Democratic candidates Tom McDermott, Paul Steury, Jessica McClellan and ZeNai Brooks. McDermott is running against incumbent Todd Young for U.S. Senate, McClellan is running against Daniel Elliott for state treasurer, and Brooks is running against incumbent Tera Klutz for state auditor.

Steury is running against Rudy Yakym in a special election to represent Indiana’s second congressional district, which was vacated after former congresswoman Jackie Walorski was killed in a car crash in early August.

Candidates discussed topics including women’s reproductive rights, health care, US bailout money, education, the environment, unions, student loans and predatory lending.

McDermott said there was a reason he was elected mayor of Hammond, Indiana five times. He noted that his priorities have changed since Roe v. Wade was overruled by the Supreme Court and said if elected he would work to codify abortion rights at the federal level.

“There is no doubt in my mind what November 8, 2022 is,” he said. “This is about restoring women’s rights in Indiana and restoring women’s rights nationwide. I wasn’t an A student in high school, but I took health (education) and learned that it takes two people to make a baby when I was in that class. I see that only half of our population is affected by the legislative changes made by our state and by the decisions of the Supreme Court. That’s not true.”

McDermott also discussed the importance of Indiana union members and accepting U.S. federal bailout money, protecting veterans, making insulin affordable for people with diabetes and the legalization of cannabis.

McClellan spoke of her experience as Monroe County Treasurer, who frequently worked with the state treasurer’s office. She said she wants to expand the use of CollegeChoice 529 plans to help Hoosiers save for college and reduce predatory loans like payday loans by implementing a program for vulnerable and elderly citizens. She also said she wanted to bring a level of accessibility to the state treasurer’s office.

“I really like this job,” she said. “It’s a personalized service that the county government brings to the table. I want to take this to the State House. … In county government, we lead with integrity and show respect. We work together because it’s about how to serve citizens.

Brooks spoke about his experience as a Chartered Accountant over the past 15 years. She said there was no one more qualified than her to work as a state auditor and noted that she had worked with budgets worth millions of dollars. She also talked about her involvement in the community as a pastor’s wife. One of its main goals, however, is to be the voice of the people on public finance. This includes using Indiana’s surplus to improve the state.

“I love Indiana,” she said. “I was born and raised in Indiana, but we know that Indiana ranks nearly last in access to food, mental health care, infant mortality, K-12 (education), all these things. It’s not for lack of investment opportunities. It’s not like we’re ranked number one and we can just lay all our money down. I think it’s irresponsible to sit on so much money and not put it back into the community.

Steury, whose slogan is “Paul for all”, spoke of his humble upbringing on a pig farm. He said that as an educator and former worker, he is a “teacher for teachers” and a “worker for workers”. He also spoke about the importance of health care for all, especially when it comes to children’s mental health, and environmental protection.

“Why do children act? asked Steury. “It’s because they don’t have anyone to talk to. If I can help increase the number of therapists and social workers in schools, I know our country will grow stronger and better. »

Steury also noted that he would be more than happy to get involved in efforts like the Growing Climate Solutions Act, which was drafted in part by Mike Braun.

Additionally, all of the candidates described the importance of voting in the upcoming elections and encouraged everyone to take this election seriously.

“When people tell you these races are not important in this off-year election season, you can tell them it’s extremely important, because we’re talking about business of the state,” Brooks said.

She went on to describe how voting for her, McClellan and Secretary of State candidate Destiny Wells could make a big difference at the state level.

“In the State Finance Council, there is an auditor, a treasurer and the director of the state budget, who is appointed by the governor,” she said. “Right now, everyone is in the same party. This council is essentially an extension of the state legislature. It meets monthly, money is moved between agencies and between funds, and you have three people of the same party, same intentions and same background moving the money. There’s not a lot of transparency about what’s going on. If you vote for me and Jessica, we have two-thirds of that board. There is an immediate power shift if you come out and vote for us.

Cass County Republicans also had a busy few weeks after holding a caucus on Aug. 22 to replace former Cass County Treasurer Cindy Howard, who resigned from her post due to family commitments.

The caucus unanimously elected Daphne Slusher to fill Howard’s spot. Slusher took office on September 1.

“Thank you to everyone who has supported me and trusted me to get the job done,” Slusher said in a press release. “I previously served in the Treasurer’s Office as Chief Deputy from 2013-2020 and bring with me a wealth of knowledge and desire for the position.”

Cass County Republicans are also planning their fall party fundraiser, which will be held at the Rogers Event Center at the Royal Center on Oct. 8 at 5:30 p.m.

David Richey, chairman of the Cass County Republican Party, said he invited all candidates from the running states to attend. He especially hopes that Rudy Yakym, who is running to fill the spot of former congressman Jacki Walorski in Indiana’s second congressional district, will attend the event so people can learn more about him and her goals.

The event costs $30 to attend, and anyone wishing to RSVP should send payment to the Cass County Republican Party at PO Box 791, Logansport, IN 46947.

Democrats attack Bob Stefanowski’s trade record – and he questions Lamont’s – Hartford Courant https://spectacles17e18e.org/democrats-attack-bob-stefanowskis-trade-record-and-he-questions-lamonts-hartford-courant/ Sun, 28 Aug 2022 10:00:32 +0000 https://spectacles17e18e.org/democrats-attack-bob-stefanowskis-trade-record-and-he-questions-lamonts-hartford-courant/ HARTFORD — With a financial career spanning more than 30 years, Republican Bob Stefanowski cites his business accomplishments as his calling card to become Connecticut’s next governor.

HARTFORD — With a financial career spanning more than 30 years, Republican Bob Stefanowski cites his business accomplishments as his calling card to become Connecticut’s next governor.

But Democrats have been hammering Stefanowski’s record for more than six weeks as they directly target his best asset in a rematch of a race he lost four years ago to Democrat Ned Lamont by just three points from percentage.

While touting his own business career with big corporations such as UBS and General Electric Co., Stefanowski simultaneously questions Lamont’s experience in building a company that bore his name and specialized in installing cable television in more than 220 colleges and universities in approximately 40 states before the company was sold in 2015.

Standing Thursday near the State Pier in New London, where major renovations have generated cost overruns of nearly $150 million, Stefanowski said the spending problem would never have happened if he had been governor. The private companies involved in the deal, he said, would have paid for the cost overruns, rather than letting the state foot the bill as is the case under Lamont.

“He doesn’t have the experience. He ran a small cable company,” Stefanowski said. “He’s never done multi-billion dollar deals. I have. … That’s the difference between a CEO and a guy who ran a small cable company and didn’t give a damn about Connecticut taxpayers.

Money from cost overruns, he said, could have been spent on better purposes.

“Do you know what that $150 million could have been used for? To improve education,” Stefanowski said, surrounded by Republican lawmakers. “We’re down 400 state troopers. Do you know what that $150 million could have been used for? To fill the ranks of soldiers and keep people safe. Totally disgusting.”

The Democratic Governors Association, through a super PAC, ran ads to remind voters of Stefanowski’s years as CEO of a payday loan company known for providing high-interest loans to working class borrowers.

“What do you really know about Bob Stefanowski? asks a narrator in an advertisement grimly. “He made millions running a payday loan company that charged workers up to 450% interest. His economic plans are so extreme that they would create a huge budget deficit.

Prior to leading the loan company, Stefanowski held key positions for 13 years at GE, which was based in Fairfield in its heyday before moving to Boston and essentially collapsing; GE will dismantle key parts of the business over the next two years.

Stefanowski also worked for three years in London as Chief Financial Officer of UBS Investment Bank, one of the giants of the investment world.

While Democratic governors have focused heavily on Stefanowski’s business background, Lamont said he has no immediate plans to target Stefanowski’s business background in the same way as Democratic governors.

“Me? I don’t think so,” Lamont told Le Courant. “The DGA is doing its thing. I’m apart of that. I’m sticking to what we’re going to do for the state over the next four years. His business is his business.”

But Lamont referred to Stefanowski’s tenure at GE, which was once one of the country’s most valuable and iconic companies. The company was worth more than $500 billion at its peak in 2000, but the company’s value has since fallen to around $82.5 billion.

“If his argument is ‘I’m going to do for Connecticut what I did for GE,’ that’s not a big story,” Lamont said. “Look what happened to GE. … It’s being broken up, sold to China and other places.

During his long career, Stefanowski, now 60, also worked for three years at 3i Group, a London-based venture capital and investment firm. He served as President and Managing Partner for the Americas and Asia while overseeing $1.5 billion in investments.

One of the companies 3i owned during Stefanowski’s tenure was called “Buy As You View.”

In an interview, Stefanowski acknowledged that the retail business was unusual in that it gave out loans for TVs, furniture and appliances – and actually raised money by installing a meter on the Borrower’s TV. Low-income customers repaid high-interest loans by putting coins in the meter, and the television could be turned off if the borrower failed to pay. The article could also be taken back.

Although the concept may seem strange in the United States, it has become common in low-income neighborhoods in Britain.

But customers complained bitterly about exorbitant interest rates, leading to an investigation by the financial services regulator known as the Financial Conduct Authority. Buy As You View finally agreed in 2016 to pay the equivalent of approximately $1 million to nearly 60,000 customers covering the period from 2001 to 2015.

Stefanowski served as chairman from 2008 to 2011, but noted that he left 3i before settlement in 2016. Buy As You View was purchased by 3i in 2004.

“I had nothing to do with it,” Stefanowski told the Courant. “I have to look at the dates, but I have nothing to do with it. The deal was done before I arrived. I have never been on the account. I barely knew it. »

Details about 3i were never made public during Lamont’s controversial 2018 gubernatorial campaign – when Stefanowski was criticized for running a separate payday loan company.

“It sounds like research on the Democratic opposition,” Stefanowski said. “Tell them to keep digging. … These guys are amazing.

Stefanowski said he expects more research into his business experience in the final two months of the campaign.

“I had such a root canal the first time, let them dig,” he said.

Lauren Gray, spokesperson for the Connecticut Democrats, said 3i’s problems were similar to those at DFC Global, a payday lender where Stefanowski served as chief executive from 2014 to 2017.

“No matter what he says, it was all happening while he was there,” Gray said of 3i. “He is always responsible for what his company was doing. … He knows what kind of companies he’s worked in. The reason he thinks he had a root canal the last time is because he was the CEO of shady companies.

Regarding the candidates’ business records, Gray said, “He wants to take hits on Lamont for his businesses, but Lamont wasn’t taking money from vulnerable people and vulnerable families. If he wants to criticize Lamont’s business experience, Bob is nothing but bad for business and bad for Connecticut.

After the settlement in 2016, the CEO of Buy As You View was quoted on a website as apologizing to consumers.

“We worked closely with the [financial regulator] over the past few months to resolve these issues, and I’m sorry to all of our customers who may have had difficulty because we haven’t met the high standards we set for ourselves,” said Graham Clarke, CEO. “We went further than the recommendations of the review by making additional changes to our operations. As we continue our journey of transformation, our goal is to be the most responsible lender in the industry.

In a video that’s still available on YouTube, Stefanowski explained why he became CEO of the payday loan company after working at much larger companies.

“My previous role was CFO of UBS Investment Bank in London,” Stefanowski said during a panel discussion at a conference in 2016. “And when I took on that role, everyone said, ‘ What? Are you insane? From there, you’re going to become the CEO of a pawn shop? There are a bunch of reasons why I did it. The one I want to talk about today is that I sincerely believe that there is a segment of the population that needs our product. Banks are not serving it at this time. Most of our customers cannot get a bank account.

He added: “The public sector has not found a solution to the problem. The problem with the industry is that it got a little greedy and took advantage of people when it didn’t necessarily have to. …So what are some of the tangible things we’ve done? We introduced a term loan product in California and Canada. It’s still a 60% annual percentage interest rate, but it’s not 1,000% like a payday loan.

Noting cost overruns in New London and other issues in state government, Stefanowski cited his corporate experience and said Lamont needed to address issues by laying off employees or going to their supervisors for changes. force out.

“That’s what I was doing in the corporate world,” Stefanowski told reporters. “It’s not much fun.”

Stefanowski held high-level positions at GE under then-CEO Jack Welch when the company was notorious for firing underperforming employees.

“There were two rules when I was in business,” Stefanowski said. “Either they didn’t know, and you should have—and you’re fired.” Or you knew it, and you didn’t say anything, and again, you’re out.

Stefanowski returned to Lamont running a 100-employee cable company, which he did before his current job running a huge state bureaucracy with about 50,000 employees and an annual budget of 24, $2 billion.

“First, I think it’s pretty clear Governor Lamont is in over his head,” Stefanowski said. “I guess he’s a good guy, but he’s not up to it.”

But Lamont’s campaign spokesman Jake Lewis said Lamont immediately made changes and imposed oversight from the state budget office when problems emerged at the state pier in New London. .

“With his campaign in chaos, Bob Stefanowski is once again looking at desperate attacks that have no basis in reality,” Lewis said. “The facts speak for themselves. Within six months of taking office, Governor Lamont installed new leadership and created tight controls to further enhance accountability and transparency. … [The] Stefanowski’s sideshow is just the latest attempt to distract from his own fractious campaign.
