    Event Synopsis:
    The early implementation of the Current Expected Credit Losses (CECL) is expected this year, and financial institutions grapple with the facets of this new accounting standard.

    The CECL includes a more complex credit loss model that requires a more detailed report when calculating and reporting future losses. The implementation of CECL could potentially increase the allowance for loan losses estimates in the years to come. Thus, it is imperative for institutions to fully understand the fundamental framework of CECL, and, to create a committee that would re-evaluate their existing models and processes to help them with the transition to this new accounting standard.

    In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders organized by The Knowledge Group will provide an in-depth discussion of significant updates on the Current Expected Credit Losses implementation. Speakers will also go beyond the basics and share risk mitigation strategies and compliance practices to avoid potential risks and legal pitfalls.

    Key topics include:
    • Current Expected Credit Losses (CECL): An Overview
    • Implementation Framework
    • Legal Considerations and Implications
    • Risk Mitigation Strategies
    • Best Compliance Practices
    • What Lies Ahead
