Fair Lending War Stories

What Can We Learn from the Mistakes or Good Practices of Others?
ABA Briefing/Webcast*


Fair Lending violations just don’t seem to go away. This makes it essential for compliance officers not only to have tools to assess fair lending risk and monitor their institutions’ lending programs, services and activities, but also to know what compliance policies, procedures and controls work to effect compliance with fair lending rules and regulations. During this recording of the two-hour briefing held on August 19, 2014, panelists address the question: what is the Fair Lending life style within your institution?

Fair lending rules have remained consistent and measures used to manage risk and compliance have been tested and proven to work. But, what is new and will continue to play out in regulatory exams are fair lending issues related to non-mortgage products and interactions with the borrower after loan origination. Panelists review recent enforcement actions, practices that successful institutions employ to stay out of the news, and what interactions you should have with your regulatory examiners.
