Ensuring the accuracy of Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (“HMDA”) data has always been a challenge and the challenges for 2018 will be even greater. This webinar will focus on ways to effectively review and ensure the accuracy of your HMDA data and avoid regulatory issues and resubmissions.
Regulators expect HMDA data to be accurate and they expect mortgage lenders to implement a system of policies, procedures, training, and ongoing monitoring to confirm its accuracy. Leveraging technology to perform ongoing periodic reviews of HMDA data can help manage that risk and help ensure the accuracy of your HMDA data. Assuring HMDA data integrity, whether manually or through systemic data integrity testing should be an integral part of the ongoing monitoring process.
The accuracy and completeness of HMDA data is also critical to understanding where and to whom loans are being made to manage fair lending risk and to ensure compliance with HMDA. Regulators continue to scrutinize lenders and inaccurate data can lead to costly file reviews, resubmissions, fines, and civil money penalties.
Who should attend?
This webinar will be beneficial for anyone in your institution who has responsibility for HMDA data integrity or analyzing the information to help manage fair lending risk, including senior management, compliance officers, attorneys and auditors.
Time: 1:30pm - 3:00pm CST
