Session Description – Why You Should Validate Your CECL Model

CECL standards are in effect for all institutions as of January 1, 2023, which is fast approaching. Are you ready? Is your model control framework and validation process up to par? An effective model control framework and validation process is crucial to your institution’s compliance and risk management functions. You cannot rely solely on an audit to challenge your model – a proper validation of your CECL model will challenge it in a multitude of ways to ensure it is functioning properly. During this presentation, we will review the CECL readiness and model validation process, as well as considerations and best practices relating to CECL.

Learning objectives:

  • Identify key components for your CECL model
  • Determine challenges/best practices in data, system validations and performance monitoring
  • Review common CECL methodologies
  • Learn how to ensure the complexity of the model is commensurate with the complexity of your institution

We hope to see you there!
