Advertising your financial institution’s products and services is not as straightforward as one might think. There are very specific things that an institution may, may not, and must say, depending on the type of product or service being promoted. Attend this session for critical tips to stay compliant.
- Differentiate between advertising requirements for open- and closed-end loans
- Use the CFPB’s Examiner’s Guide advertising checklists to create compliant advertisements
- Define what constitutes an advertisement
- Explain the use of required disclosures in advertisements for deposit and lending products
- Distinguish between advertisements that do and don’t trigger advertising disclosures
Are you confused about when an APR triggers additional disclosures in a loan ad, or whether you are required to include additional information in an advertisement for a savings account? This webinar will address the consumer protection regulations applicable to your institution’s marketing programs, including Truth in Savings, Truth in Lending, unfair, deceptive, or abusive acts or practices (UDAAP), Fair Credit Reporting Act, insured accounts, equal housing lender, and more.
