Hot topics in Fair Lending

Fair lending is the practice outlined in the Fair Housing Act of 1968. It prohibits lenders from discriminating against borrowers on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status, or physical handicap. Understanding what the current financial environment is facing in regards to Fair Lending is critical for a financial institution to have a successful compliance program. Fair Lending is one of the basic regulatory compliance elements that all financial institutions are required to adhere to. This webinar will offer insight into ensuring your institution is compliant with Fair Lending requirements and how to build a successful program.
