Now is the time to begin the steps for developing a data preparation plan for CECL.
With the recent Financial Accounting Standards Board vote to proceed and the final Accounting Standards Update now published, the Current Expected Credit Loss (CECL) standards remain top of mind for the C-suite in financial institutions. Even though the official adoption deadline has been pushed back to after December 2019, financial institutions should take actions today to help prepare for the new rules. Data is a great place to start.
The Impact of CECL and Financial Institution Readiness
When it comes to CECL compliance, top financial consultants agree that extensive amounts of historical data, including different lengths of portfolio histories, will be needed. In addition, this research reveals that a majority of financial institutions do not understand how their risk management methodology needs to change. Nor do they comprehend the impacts of the changes that will need to be made to calculate Allowance for Loan and Lease Losses (ALLL).
This represents a significant opportunity for top-tier consultancies to provide valuable thought leadership and guidance now, before financial institutions find themselves scrambling to meet the new standard. Learn more in our survey results."
With the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) Current Expected Credit Loss (CECL) impairment standard and Allowance for Loan and Lease Losses (ALLL) finalized, preparation and interpretation has begun. Having the right tools to help gather and organize the historical data, create pools and calculate loss rates is critical. In this webinar, we’ll walk through Prologue™ Credit Loss Manager from Fiserv and how it will help you be prepared for CECL.
