Fair Lending Essentials Webinar


Discrimination can be obvious, subtle, or unintended. Charges of discrimination can come from any direction. Risk comes in the form of penalties, regulatory enforcement actions, civil liability, or damage to a bank’s reputation, to mention a few. The best defense against these threats and risks is developing and maintaining a sound, fair lending compliance management system.
