Do you know what changes the CFPB has brought to Fair Lending with a focus on "data driven" information and consumer complaints? Has your regulator issued any recent enforcement actions? How will your institution be evaluated in the next Fair Lending exam? Could you be targeted for a "special" Fair Lending review as an "outlier bank" based on HMDA data or "proxy" information? Learn how Fair Lending will be evaluated differently than ever before.

Learn about the most current "red flags" identified by regulators in conducting Fair Lending exams. You can avoid many of these pitfalls by developing simple internal controls as part of an effective compliance management system. Learn how to monitor exceptions to policies and procedures.
