The Road to CECL Compliance: Preparing for Day One

June 19 | 787 Seventh Ave. | New York City

The current expected credit loss (CECL) standard takes effect Dec. 15, 2019, for public business entities that file with the SEC. In a SAS survey earlier this year, a third of respondents said they want to test CECL-related processes and technology in parallel with their current systems for at least four quarters before December 2019.

This means there will be a lot of work to do in 2018.

Join SAS and KPMG experts for this half-day live event designed to inform, support and activate you for successful CECL compliance. Listen in, ask questions and leave with the answers you need as we explore:

• The key market trends shaping CECL.
• New survey findings on CECL readiness.
• How technology is transforming the CECL process and how SAS can help.
• The four-phased approach to a successful CECL strategy and why you need it.

This is a complimentary event for director level and above. Seats are limited.
