Fair Lending – Key Components & Current Agency Guidelines Webinar


Fair lending issues continue to be emphasized by regulatory agencies. In this webinar, we will explain the types of lending discrimination and provide examples to ensure your team is able to identify and prevent potential issues. Another critical component of identifying fair lending issues includes a discussion of redlining. We will also walk through the current fair lending materials issued from the regulatory agencies, including the Fair Lending Report of the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection.

Through a study of these documents, we will discuss redlining, appraisal discrimination, the use of artificial intelligence, reconsideration of value and disability discrimination all of which are topics that should be addressed within your institution’s policies, procedures, training or monitoring activities. These topics and more have been the subject of recent agency issued blogs, press releases, webinars, speeches and enforcement actions. Join us as we share tips and best practices to ensure your organization has updated its fair lending compliance management system to include these areas with this renewed focus on fair lending.
