2019 Modified LAR Data Release and Improved Peer-2-Peer in Comply

Added on April 3, 2020

As many of you may have noticed, the 2019 Modified LAR data was released by the CFPB/FFIEC on March 31st. While this information is useful for analyzing individual institution data, there is no transmittal information to help select your peer groups. If you know the name and LEI of one of your peers that you would like to analyze, you can download the individual data and load to a reporting entity in Comply.

We have attempted in the past to utilize this early release of the data, but what we found was that the data…

Quarterly Submission Information for Required Institutions

Added on March 13, 2020

Beginning January 1, 2020, the 2015 HMDA Final Rule requires quarterly reporting for financial institutions that reported a combined total of at least 60,000 applications and covered loans, excluding purchased covered loans, for the preceding calendar year.
