2020 Business Lending Readiness Survey: Preparing Now for Economic Uncertainty Ahead

Abrigo’s 2020 Business Lending Readiness Survey asked more than 300 lenders, credit analysts, chief credit officers and chief risk officers, as well as other professionals involved in the lending and credit risk process at banks and credit unions what challenges they currently face related to driving loan growth and managing credit risk.
Many respondents’ institutions have processes that add costs, delay turnaround times, and can lead to inconsistency in pricing and risk management, or worse yet, unhappy customers and staff.

        Free Webinar | Earn 1 CPE | Exit Price Estimation and Disclosure: Getting More Value from Your Calculations

        Thursday, February 27, 2020
        2:00 PM ET / 1:00 PM CT
        Register

        In this webinar, we will demonstrate how to make calculations using the fair value of assets with the exit price notion and prepare disclosures using common information stores, existing practices within the institution, and industry data. A time-consuming and tedious process that seemingly requires valuation expertise can be streamlined, and attribution of changes from period to period can provide useful internal intelligence.

        Both CECL and fair value outputs contain “life of loan” credit loss estimates. Management and external auditors desire analogy and cohesion in both processes, and this session will walk through how to achieve this synergy. This webinar will be particularly useful to personnel in finance, accounting, and financial reporting, and is intended for public entities.

        Join to learn:
        • Why exit price calculations today aren’t as efficient as they could be
        • Specific examples of calculations that save high-value time and reduce manual error
        • How to align disclosure preparation to similar business activities (including acquisition valuation + CECL transition)
