An Overview of Our CECL Capabilities


CECL places significant requirements on a company’s data management programs. This includes the need for current data as well as robust historical data to consider within your CECL estimates. Moody’s Analytics can assist with our award-winning data to help you develop, improve, and validate your data and credit risk models. We offer credit, economic, and financial datasets.



A key requirement within the CECL guidance is the use of "reasonable and supportable" economic forecasts. Moody’s Analytics can help your company by providing our industry-leading economic scenarios that have been developed using our proprietary econometric models.






Many companies have chosen to solve for CECL using credit loss models to determine the likelihood and extent of future losses. Moody’s Analytics can assist you in addressing this challenge for your unique portfolio composition with our best-in-class modeling methodologies. We help clients assess, manage, and validate models for CECL requirements and consistency with industry standards.

Beyond CECL
Risk Grading Module
Credit Origination

Adopting CECL starts with credit origination. Collecting accurate and standardized data from borrowers at the point of credit origination benefits all downstream processes, including the calculation of loss allowances. To do this successfully, financial institutions must implement automation and digitization technology to streamline the credit assessment and origination process.

The CreditLens™ platform integrates with our award-winning ImpairmentStudio solution, eliminating the need for manual data entry and further improving your data integrity.

Stress Testing and Capital Planning

Even before completing your CECL adoption, your organization should consider how to plan and forecast with the new allowance accounting in place. Moody’s Analytics is helping many organizations do so by usingour credit risk models and economic scenarios. We also offer an automated framework with the ability to forecast CECL provisioning.

Moody's Analytics Capital Risk Analyzer combines economic, credit, and accounting know-how to help organizations evaluate strategic decisions based on financial and regulatory metrics for capital planning and stress testing (DFAST, EBA).
