Why You Should Attend

Current Expected Credit Loss (CECL) Modelling

To ensure we meet your expectations and maximise your return on training investment, we favour a classroom/workshop style set up for the delivery of our courses. Please note we have therefore limited number of spaces available and these will be assigned on a first come, first accepted basis. We recommend early booking to avoid disappointment.

How will you benefit?

This 2-day course is designed for analysts and modelers, though those responsible for accounting and loss reserve estimation will also benefit. The course will be highly interactive with discussions and hands-on activities that lock in concepts with realistic learning situations. Key takeaways include:

· How credit risk parameters can be distilled from historic loss data

· Development of alternative approaches for modelling probability of default, exposure at default and loss given default for wholesale credit risk

· Understanding of drivers useful for segmenting retail portfolios and estimating defaults and losses

· How macro economic factors can affect the estimation results

· The importance of model validation and review

A special focus has been on regulatory issues, Basel, and JPMorgan’s Strategic Risk Grading Task Force. He has published widely in journals, authored chapters in books, and is a frequent speaker at conferences.

Pre-course questionnaire:

A detailed questionnaire will be sent to all course participants to establish exactly where the group training needs lie. The completed forms will be analysed by the course leader/trainer and followed by telephone if further clarification is required. As a result we can guarantee that the course is pitched at exactly the right level and that the issues that you regard as relevant are addressed. The course material will reflect these issues and will enable you to digest the subject matter after the event in your own time.
