Updates in the Credit Industry

When:  Mar 21, 2019 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM (ET)
The March 2019 Financial Counseling call with the AFCPE will be held on Thursday, the 21st at 12 pm ET.

Guest speaker Carmina Loss with Credit Builders Alliance will be presenting, "Updates in the Credit Industry."

Credit reporting and scoring is constantly evolving to adapt to changes in consumer protection laws, consumer and economic patterns, and the business needs of lending institutions. Recent developments in the credit industry, in particular the implementation of new consumer protections, policy changes, and the growing use of alternative and “consumer-permissioned” data, may impact the credit reports and scores of consumers engaged in financial coaching and counseling.  This webinar will explore the ways that these changes will impact consumers, and best practices for financial coaches and counselors working with clients to establish and improve credit histories.

Learning Objectives:

  • Become familiar with recent policy and industry developments in consumer credit reporting;
  • Learn how recent developments in the credit industry may impact clients’ credit reports and scores;
  • Understand the best practices for helping clients proactively build and manage their credit profiles amid these changes.
