In response to the high volume of requests from our credit unions, LEVERAGE has partnered with CRF Advisors to offer a CECL (Current Expected Credit Losses) solution. This offering will provide individualized consulting to assess how CECL Methodology will affect your credit union, what platform and data sets are needed to comply with new reporting requirements, as well as ongoing support for data collection and storage, forecasting, and reports.
Current Expected Credit Losses
CECL is used as shorthand for the new GAAP requirement to include expected life of loan (LOL) losses in the allowance for loan and lease losses (ALLL), versus the current incurred loss model. Generally, loss estimates will increase, be more volatile, and require subjective assumptions. Therefore, processes must be enhanced and well-documented to ensure future compliance as new CECL models and data requirements go into effect.
Loan Loss Reserve
CECL Methodology will change loan loss, reserve calculations, and will have implications across many aspects of day-to-day operations for credit unions. CRF Advisors will review and analyze methodologies, provide assistance with documenting requirements, ensure proper systems inputs, and monitor roles and responsibilities to ensure compliance and transparency of the implementation process throughout the organization.
Credit Union benefits from CRF Advisors include:
In 2016, federal regulators issued a new GAAP accounting standard for the calculation of the Allowance for Loan and Lease Loss (ALLL). This new standard utilizes the current expected credit loss (CECL) calculation method versus the current incurred loss model.
Regulators have directed credit unions to comply in their Call Reports beginning on March 31, 2022.
Generally, loss estimates will increase, be more volatile, and require subjective assumptions. Therefore, processes must be enhanced and well-documented to ensure future compliance as new CECL models and data requirements go into effect
Each credit union is different, and CRF Advisors will consult with each leadership team to satisfy the CECL requirements with a clear, manageable, and complete solution.
Some of the key changes associated with the implementation of CECL are:
One reason credit unions have opted to begin implementing a CECL program is to ensure they have enough time to see the effects on their balance sheets and make necessary changes before the required reporting date.
CECL has various calculation methodologies, and CRF Advisors will consult with your management team and board to ensure they understand and select the most effective methods to best meet credit unions’ needs.
CRF Advisors’ team uses its 30 years of experience in lending, credit, auditing, and credit modeling to develop a complete CECL solution that includes customized: training for management and board, program development, and reporting for each credit union. Also, the pricing for CRF Advisors’ complete CECL solution is typically lower than other competitive CECL solutions.
