Examiners and auditors are concerned not just with an institution’s allowance level, but also with the adequacy of the process used to get to that level. Subpar or poorly documented processes or methodologies may not always be criticized in good times, but they leave a significant opening for criticism if the economy or an institution’s credit quality starts to turn. This webinar will focus on practical recommendations for effectively documenting your institution’s approach to estimating the allowance. It will review considerations that should be incorporated into an effective methodology, but the emphasis will be on how an institution can effectively support and document the approach it has determined most appropriate for its portfolio.

Examiners and auditors give little or no credit for things that are not well-documented. They are also more likely to be comfortable with an institution’s allowance level if there is evidence that a reliable and well-thought-out process is in place. This presentation will also address how an institution can effectively document the work it is doing to prepare for CECL and, ultimately, support its choices for CECL implementation.
