CECL Hidden Complexities for Credit Unions

Presenter: Jared Mills

In this 45 minute webinar, Jared Mills of the Sageworks Advisory Group will discuss the hidden complexities when simple, expedient approaches for measurement under the CECL accounting standard are applied to credit union loan portfolios. Having worked at a credit union before as an Assistant Director of Accounting, he will discuss the impact, control and structural complexities that he knows are relevant to the industry.

Join to learn about:

  • How to make methodological and segmentation choices without investing any time in loan-level data gathering, software, or model development
  • The complex data problems associated with the application of specific loss rate approaches
  • The FASB-approved way to estimate and justify allocation, even with data concerns, without resorting heavily to qualitative adjustment
