CECL Webinar


CECL and the Investment Portfolio Webinar

Thursday, September 8, 2022

10:30 a.m. CDT

As we hit the home stretch for CECL effectiveness, many are still left wondering how their bond portfolios will be affected. The current expected credit loss model is applicable to all assets held at amortized cost, including held to maturity securities. Many financial institutions have owned bonds for years with little to no credit losses along the way. Most institutions have their CECL solutions lined up for the loan portfolio, but are you ready for CECL and the investment portfolio? Join us for a webinar that discusses how CECL applies to the bond portfolio and a solution to calculate your estimated CECL bond reserves.
