          Free Webinar | Qualitative Adjustment In Times of Crisis and Stress (Testing)

          Wednesday, June 3, 2020
          3:00 PM ET / 2:00 PM CT
          Save your seat

          Join us for this free webinar as we discuss our approach to establishing qualitative adjustments as the 6.30.2020 statement date approaches and the full impacts of the pandemic and energy crises are not yet specifically knowable.  By constructing straightforward credit models using available internal and public data, we can perform an estimate to substantiate 6.30.2020 qualitative adjustments (and beyond). Additionally, those same models can be used to perform a top-down stress testing estimate under a variety of forecasting scenarios. Those models can also be used to inform estimates under the CECL standard so that an institution is prepared to adopt without significant additional effort. **Please note this webinar is intended for public and private institutions that have not yet adopted the forward-looking CECL standard.**

                  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

                    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.

                    • 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
