Depending on the size of your bank, CECL, the new ALLL methodology requirements, will become effective in three or four years.  But there is a lot to tend to before they are effective.  A Deloitte Managing Director will help you get ready.

Webinar Link to Register:

The American Association of Bank Directors and Deloitte & Touche are jointly sponsoring a complimentary webinar at 2 pm Eastern on 5, April 2017 for members of bank boards, CEOs, and CFOs on CECL.

CECL requires banks to estimate “Current Expect Credit Loss” by using historical information, current conditions and reasonable and supportable forecasts.  This is a fundamental departure from past requirements that use the “incurred loss approach” and could require very different and significantly greater data requirements and changes in methodology than banks are used to.

In June 2016, the federal banking agencies issued a statement that “This important accounting change requires the attention of each financial institution’s board of directors and senior management.

Questions that the webinar will address:

  • What do you need to know, ask about, and do?
  • What are the  ten questions that you need to ask and document?
  • What impact will CECL have on your bank’s business and strategy?
  • What information base, systems, and controls will your bank need to comply?
  • What corporate governance and risk management principles can help you?
  • How should your bank handle the qualitative part of the ALLL?
  • How should your bank document its efforts?
  • What more do you need to know if you serve on the Audit Committee?
  • What will the banking agencies be expecting of you as board members and senior management?

This webinar is complimentary and open to all bank directors, CFOs, and CEOs.
