The CECL Journey – Meeting the CECL Challenge

CECL is more than a calculation – it is a series of decisions that an institution must make about their strategy and tactics surrounding issues like life of loan estimates, “reasonable and supportable” projections and supporting data. Learn about the early “Must Do’s” for CECL all smaller institutions should be doing in 2018.

Key Topics:

  • What is the CECL estimating life of loan?
  • What is a reasonable and supportable projection?
  • What data do you need to have?
  • What are other implementation concerns to consider now?
  • How can Argus and Ardmore help meet the CECL challenge?


Wednesday, December 6th. 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm Central Time
