In 2015, regulatory compliance will be the main focus for banks. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and other banking regulators will attend to deceptive marketing, debt traps, dead ends, and discrimination. With increasing data breaches in retail markets, payment system protection will be enhanced for mobile banking and other emerging technologies. The CFPB will continue to focus on the Home Mortgage Database (HMDA) proposed rule, overdraft, debt collection, pay-day lending, and arbitration clauses. Vendor management also will be important due to data breaches, systems implementation, and fair lending issues.
TILA/RESPA integrated disclosure implementation will not be ready by the August 2015 deadline; thereby leading to additional regulatory risks and problems for banking institutions. The addition of commercial loans and HELOCs will create immense challenges in the Banking industry. Also impending is the Dodd-Frank-mandated small business data collection process.
It is critically important that banking officials, compliance and regulatory officers, and their counsel develop strong compliance strategies. Otherwise they face failing to note, understand, or to act upon important, up-coming regulatory changes – and face severe, maybe even catastrophic consequences.
In this two-hour live webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders assembled by The Knowledge Group will discuss the important Up-coming Banking Regulations and The Importance of Compliance in 2015. The panel of speakers also will provide advice regarding compliance and litigation avoidance strategies for banking institution officials.
