    Moody’s Analytics Webinar: CECL – Lending in Current Conditions

    Join CECL experts Robby Holditch and Christian Henkel as they share practical examples and useful strategies applicable to your CECL implementation plan.

    In 2016, the FASB issued the current expected credit loss (CECL) standard. It requires financial institutions to change the way they calculate potential future losses on certain financial instruments. Adopting the new guidelines might not be easy. Recent publications state that nearly half of community banks have not started planning for CECL implementation. Complying with the new accounting standard will test practitioners, auditors, and regulators as the full effects of the change come into focus. 

    Many banks, savings institutions, and credit unions have for decades derived loan loss reserve amounts from their internal risk ratings. Given the requirement to run frequent reserve calculations that incorporate all future expected credit losses, your organization might soon see a separation of these two important risk metrics. .
