As most of us know the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) introduced the new Current Expected Credit Loss (CECL) standard last year to better understand the credit risk associated with the portfolio and reporting on financial instruments in financial statements. A successful implementation of CECL requires better integration between accounting and risk management and access to an expanded historical data set to calculate credit reserves. CECL creates a waterfall effect for financial accounting and the budgeting and planning teams. Creating a plan and asking proactive questions will help the institution better prepare for the changes and avoid the myths and misconceptions.
