Spanish Glossary of Financial Terms Updated
The Bureau of Consumer Financial Protections has released an update to its Spanish Glossary of Financial Terms. While the glossary is intended to be used by financial educators, it can be useful for anyone who wants to communicate more precisely about financial terms.
The Bureau first produced the glossary in 2015. This year the glossary has been updated and expanded to include a broader selection of terms used by a variety of government agencies. According to Carmen Cruz, Financial Education Program Analyst, the glossary now includes terms used by the Federal Housing Finance Agency, Department of Housing and Urban Development, Internal Revenue Service, Department of Justice, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Federal Trade Commission, Social Security Administration, Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae, General Services Administration, and the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals.
