The Financial and Accounting Standards Board (FASB) has issued the new accounting standard for how you reserve against your loan and investment losses, and it is called CECL, or Current Expected Credit Losses.  This new model will change how your credit union analyzes and accounts for losses and prepares your financial statements.  It is a dramatic move from your current ALLL (Allowance for Loan and Lease Losses) which models your reserve based on historical “incurred” losses, and transitions to a “expected” loss model based on cash flows over the LIFE of the loan.  This transition will bring significantly greater data requirements and changes to internal methodologies to accurately account for expected losses under the new parameters.

This new regulation and accounting standard goes into place on January 1st, 2021, however you need to begin preparing now for this momentous change.  More than just an accounting standard; lending, operational, and technology departments will have to be involved in preparing this new methodology.  How will you collect the needed data?  How will you segment your loan pools?  What will be the potential impact to your financial models?  Hear from credit unions of all sizes, as well as other subject matter experts, as they discuss the steps they have taken to prepare for this historic change.
