CECL Model Implementation Protiviti Event 2018

CECL Model Implementation Protiviti Event 2018

With the deadline for implementation looming in Q1 2020, 2018 is a busy year as financial institutions push to prepare Current Expected Credit Loss (CECL) models for parallel run. While some have already created their models, others are pushing to finalize models and acquire new tools. Under the CECL regulation, financial institutions will be required to use historical information, current conditions and reasonable forecasts to estimate expected loss over the life of a loan. Attend this session to learn what Model Validation and Internal Audit can do to stay on top of the process.

Key Learning Points:

  • Interpret and discuss validation activities as the models are developed and after they are completed
  • Analyze the challenges institutions already planning for CECL are encountering
  • Evaluate what other institutions are doing to audit CECL models and process controls
