Current Expected Credit Loss (CECL)

Provides powerful risk data and model management that enhances banks’ ability to meet FASB risk accounting requirements and strengthens risk perspectives


Device Frame

The Financial Accounting Standard Board’s (FASB) new risk-sensitive accounting requirement, Current Expected Credit Loss (CECL), is challenging financial institutions of every size due to implementation of complex manual processes and cost.


Because CECL replaces the incurred loss approach with the requirement to calculate the expected lifetime loss at any point in time, compliance entails significant, time-consuming changes at every step of the allowance calculation process.

CECL is likely to compel banks to increase their credit-loss reserves significantly, which could lessen how much they can lend to companies and individuals.

Questions to Consider

  • What challenges and opportunities do we face with CECL?
  • By how much will CECL increase our credit loss reserve?
  • How does our approach to model management impact CECL adoption efficiency?

  • Are we ready to navigate CECL implementation challenges?
  • How can we minimize implementation costs and delays?
  • Will CECL lead to profit and loss volatility for us?
