        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

          Complimentary Group Demo: September 20th, 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. ET

          In August, Sageworks launched one of their newest products, “Insights”, to help leaders leverage loan portfolio data in new and meaningful ways. Lack of and limited access to bank-wide data, accompanied by time-consuming analysis, can hurt leadership’s ability to make well-informed, timely decisions. In this complimentary group demonstration, we aim to show how our newest offering can help bridge that gap.

          Join to learn:

          • How to perform simulations of the loan portfolio in order to inform financial statement impact for budgeting purposes
          • How Insights can help as part of Dodd Frank Act Stress Test preparation (or stress testing under CECL, more broadly)
          • How to set up scenarios to view how the portfolio would respond with various assumptions
          • Using the Acquisition Analyzer as part of potential acquisition due diligence
          • How Segment Insights can be leveraged for board & concentration reporting
          • Potential Roadmap for continued development
