    Free Webinar | CECL and Your ALM Model

    Wednesday, October 9 | 3 p.m. EST/ 2 p.m. CST
    Presenter: Rob Newberry

    As we get closer to implementation of CECL, we want as much information as we can get to help in understanding everything that should be considered in putting together our CECL models.
    CECL is best thought of as part of a holistic view that focuses on Enterprise Risk Management and not just credit risk alone. It is no longer advisable to operate in silos as you might have done in the past when credit loss reserves were calculated by the Credit Officer for the institution, while Asset/Liability forecasts were in the domain of the CFO. With the need to look at a more forecasted approach to determine credit reserves, it makes sense to leverage some of the assumptions that have been used in the past for developing loan assumptions in your A/L models.

    Join this free webinar to learn:
    • How CECL will impact ALM 
    • Effective capital planning and loan pricing processes
    • What the changing regulatory landscape is like

          Free Webinar - Stress Testing and CECL: Connecting the Dots

          Register today! 

          Financial institutions have been conducting stress tests long before the regulatory mandates were put in place after the 2007-2008 financial crisis.  Larger financial institutions have principally adopted the top-down approach (aka CCAR) which focuses on macro-economic changes and the resulting “stress” on large portfolios or individual assets.  Smaller financial institutions ($25B or less) primarily perform the bottom-up “stress” that focuses on the loan transaction risk stemming from changes in micro-economic factors i.e. increasing interest rates or cash flows.  As the goal of both approaches is a test on the capital adequacy of the respective financial institution, with CECL having the same goals, CEIS and Abrigo will examine the “bottom-up” stress test approach and the pros and cons for your CECL program

          Join this webinar as we discuss:
          1. Data challenges
          2. The benefits of bottom-up stress testing
          3. Using stress testing data and outcomes in the CECL model development
