The focus of the effect of the current expected credit loss (CECL) model has been primarily on loans, and rightfully so. However, CECL’s impact goes beyond loans for community financial institutions. In this webinar we’ll cover the two most common effects; debt securities and off-balance sheet commitments. We’ll examine the effect of the new credit loss standard on debt securities based on the debt security’s classification, whether it’s held-to-maturity (HTM) or available-for-sale (AFS). Finally, we’ll look at CECL’s impact on off-balance sheet loan commitments, including determining which commitments are unconditionally cancelable.

Be sure you’re also registered for our December 5 webinar on CECL & Business Combinations.
