NEW YORK, November 2, 2017 – Moody’s Analytics recently launched the ImpairmentStudio™ platform to help US firms calculate and report on the allowance for credit losses under the new Current Expected Credit Loss (CECL) accounting standard.
The ImpairmentStudio™ solution combines Moody’s Analytics credit risk expertise with accounting best practices to allow institutions to address the operational complexities of the accounting standard that will go into effect in January 2020. It simplifies and organizes the complex processes of data consolidation, model and scenario warehousing, expected credit loss calculation, and impairment analysis.

For a more transparent and auditable process, the solution incorporates audit trails for each step of an analysis.
“Moody’s Analytics has unparalleled experience using credit data, analytics, and technology to aid institutions in meeting market and regulatory requirements. The new CECL standard fundamentally changes how credit instruments are accounted for, directly impacting US companies’ financials under GAAP,” said Eric Ebel, Managing Director at Moody’s Analytics. “With this tool, our customers can satisfy auditors and regulators while simultaneously gaining critical insights from rich datasets and analytics, enabling them to make better business decisions that reflect the new standard.”
