Despite the associated challenges surrounding the pandemic, preparedness will be the key to CECL. It is important that we actively identify the issues that will create complications and address them in preparing the estimate, work in advance to discuss and clear issues or positions with the auditors and regulators, and determine that there are controls in place to make sure everything gets done right.
In an interview with RMA Communications Manager Stephen Krasowski, Benjamin Hoffman, Managing Director of Financial Risk Management at KPMG and Joseph Bielecki, Director, Advisory, of Financial Risk Management at KPMG, discuss the volatility of CECL estimates, COVID-related modifications and challenges, model limitations, and accounting policy elections and assumptions.
