Is your bank ready for CECL?
The new standard for Current Expected Credit Loss (CECL) greatly increases the complexity of the allowance estimation process. Implementing CECL is complex, in part because the standards are new, and because there is no consensus on implementation specifics. Regardless of how the new standards are interpreted, compliance will require financial institutions to revise or develop new models and adapt their model risk management program. Effective credit loss model development under CECL will have to integrate predictive modeling, analytics, advanced data management, and accounting principles.
