As many banks can attest, staying abreast of ever-changing and increasingly complex regulatory requirements, expectations, and industry practices is a daunting challenge. Given the increased focus on consumer protections, it is even more critical for banks to be in compliance with consumer lending regulations.  This 3–part loan webinar series will help financial institutions address these challenges by explaining the range of rules, regulations and regulatory standards that apply to non-mortgage consumer lending transactions.

Sessions 101 and 201 provide an overview of key regulations and requirements. Session 301 explains the application of these regulatory requirements to the day-to-day operations of your consumer lending program.
