Peer Identification for CECL and Other Credit Risk Applications
The past is the preferred fallback when estimating future results, but when a financial institution hasn’t experienced much credit deterioration or loss, it can consider its own history as well as a broader set of experience. In this session, Abrigo advisors will discuss using peer cohorts to construct credit risk models when applying the current expected credit loss (CECL) standard, along with important considerations in doing so. Practices for identifying and using peer data will apply to other modeling exercises such as stress testing, capital planning, asset/liability management (ALM), and valuation and are based on years of implementing credit risk models for clients of diverse sizes and complexity.
