Industry experts see CECL as one of the most significant changes facing financial institutions. See how this guide can assist in your organization’s transition to CECL.
Are you ready for CECL?
After years of deliberations dating back to the 2008 financial crisis, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued the highly anticipated Current Expected Credit Loss accounting model (CECL) on June 16, 2016. Find out how you can prepare for this new requirement and five key operational challenges.
Getting to know CECL models
The core concept of CECL requires a forward-looking
estimate of the lifetime credit loss of a financial instrument.
The proposed standard does not prescribe any specific
method for generating these estimates, and methods
ranging from simple vintage analysis to advanced
econometric models will be acceptable.
FASB’s new credit loss accounting standard will impact the end-to-end reserving process for financial instruments measured at amortized cost.
