Major Hurdles to Overcome to be CECL-Ready


Duration:60 minutes


Current expected credit loss (CECL) represents the biggest accounting standards change in years. While large banks can potentially better adapt to this rule, other financial institutions may face challenges to be CECL-ready.

This webinar will address the potential hurdles and how TransUnion’s CECL Credit Loss CalculatorSM, created in partnership with EXL Service, can help you through this transition.

    We’ll discuss:
  • Data assessment: The need for granular data on loan originations, a comprehensive snapshot of current portfolios and a longer history to analyze losses over the life of loans
  • Forecasting approaches: The approaches that exist depending on portfolio size, loss rates, and changes in portfolio composition and performance—and why some may work better than others
  • Credit cards and revolving products: The challenges posed by the CECL guideline that losses from undrawn portions of credit lines need not be considered in reserve estimation for credit cards and revolving lines
  • Macroeconomic scenarios: The impact these conditions can have on loan losses and why it matters when estimating reserves
