In this webinar, our experts discuss the important considerations in the modeling and implementation of the CECL standard for retail portfolios. Learn more about loan-level modeling approaches that can be used to forecast credit losses for retail portfolios and how to leverage existing risk measurement practices.

Implementation of the new financial instruments impairment standard (CECL), may take between twelve months to two years and over 62% of banks surveyed by Moody’s Analytics expect CECL compliance to increase their overall provisions.

Successful implementation requires understanding the impact of the accounting standard on provisions and identification of appropriate methodologies to incorporate the forward-looking information and life-of-loan horizon required for CECL.

Moody’s Analytics has designed a series of CECL Methodology webinars to help firms of all sizes with the tactical and strategic considerations when selecting the best modeling approach.

In this fourth webinar of our series, our experts discuss the important considerations in the modeling and implementation of the CECL standard for retail portfolios. Learn more about loan-level modeling approaches that can be used to forecast credit losses for retail portfolios and how to leverage existing risk measurement practices.
