CECL: The need for data – And its impacts across the institution
The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) has introduced the new Current Expected Credit Loss (CECL) standard to better understand the credit risk associated with the portfolio and reporting on financial instruments in financial statements. A successful implementation of CECL requires better integration between accounting and risk management and access to an expanded historical data set to calculate credit reserves. CECL creates a waterfall effect for financial accounting and the budgeting and planning teams.
CFO’s, Controllers, Financial Accountants and Asset Liability Managers should join Fiserv experts for an educational and informative discussion to learn how your institution will not only need a more complete view of your portfolios, but a data strategy to manage the new process across all risk, compliance and accounting disciplines that span the financial institution.
