Compliance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (“FCRA”) remains a high-risk issue for financial institutions of all sizes and complexity levels due to increasing regulatory scrutiny and enforcement actions. To date, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (“CFPB”) has issued millions of dollars in fines associated with enforcement actions for non-compliance and emphasizes in a recent publication that “even a seemingly minor inaccuracy in a credit report can lead to a consumer being denied a loan, housing, or a job.”
As part of FTI Consulting’s suite of FCRA solutions, we offer EvaluData, a proprietary data analytics tool designed to assess the overall health of the Metro 2® furnishing file based on business rules and Metro 2® guidance. FTI’s proprietary EvaluData tool includes over 175 rules, including many that cover a variety of scenarios and can be configured to each furnisher’s reporting practices and portfolios.
