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.
