NEWS | For Immediate Release
SAN FRANCISCO, March 15, 2021 – Moody’s Analytics announced today that Teachers Federal Credit Union has selected its Current Expected Credit Loss (CECL), asset and liability management (ALM), and stress testing solutions to improve their risk and treasury processes.
To prepare for the adoption of CECL, the credit union selected the ImpairmentStudio™ platform to automate their allowance calculation, analysis, reporting, and workflow. The solution also supports custom model development, validation, monitoring, and execution alongside a range of off-the-shelf loss-forecasting models. The credit union will also use Portfolio Analyzer, the Moody’s Analytics consumer loan models platform, to drive expected loss calculations and support their stress testing and capital strategy decisions.
Teachers Federal Credit Union also selected the Moody’s Analytics ZMDeskTM solution for their ALM activities. This flagship product of ZM Financial Systems, which Moody’s Corporation acquired last year, enables users to project earnings, values, credit losses, and a wide range of stress test metrics under various interest rate risk and macroeconomic scenarios.
“In 2021, many credit unions are investing in technology to better measure risk and improve operational processes for the benefit of their members,” said Ed Young, Senior Director at Moody’s Analytics. “We see this as an excellent opportunity for Teachers Federal Credit Union to leverage the broad capabilities of Moody’s Analytics to manage their risks more holistically.”
“With continued expansion and an elevated member experience on the horizon, maintaining a consistent view of risk across departments is vital,” said Denise McGlone, Chief Financial Officer at Teachers Federal Credit Union. “By collaborating with Moody’s Analytics, our organization is able to leverage intuitive systems that will allow us to grow, scale, and promote sound business decisions for the betterment of our members, both current and future.”
