What does ASU 2016-13 say about modelling? What are examples of potential approaches, and what are their respective strengths and weakenesses? What information is needed for different modeling approaches? How are controls and corporate governance impacted?

Todd Sprang – CliftonLarsonAllen

CECL Overview: How to Succeed through Transition – This session will be an introduction to CECL and focused on unpacking the final guidance released by the FASB on June 16th. Attendees will gain actionable insights on how to better navigate through the transition and how those insights will have impact across the institution.
