Compliance for CECL is closing in. To ensure your institution is prepared, it is critical to begin preparations now - if you have not yet done so. Top financial accounting firms recommend that Financial Institutions (FI) run their existing allowance calculations in parallel with their selected CECL solution (i.e. spreadsheet or third party software) for a period of time. This recommendation, of course, assumes that FIs have already overcome the major hurdle of choosing a CECL solution (and associated methodologies) for calculating current expected credit losses. For many institutions, researching and selecting a third party solution to establish initial CECL compliance and reporting can be nearly as arduous as the new regulation. Because the standard for CECL compliance is not prescriptive (i.e. there is no “specific methodology” that must be followed), many institutions have adopted needlessly complex solutions with multiple inputs that are likely to become burdensome to maintain long term. On the other end of the spectrum, FIs have developed Excel based solutions (in house or by working with advisors), that are not only labor intensive to maintain, but offer limited functionality. Still other institutions are seizing this opportunity to improve their data gathering, data retention and data mining & analytics capabilities. In whole, it appears the level of disparity in approaches to CECL compliance is equal only to the number of CECL solutions proffered by third party vendors. With this level of “noise” surrounding the CECL regulation, it’s easy to understand why some institutions have reached “analyses paralysis.” As with any new regulatory edict, the most effective path forward to ensure compliance by the January 2023 deadline, is a common sense approach. Each FI should look for a solution that: (1) offers multiple methodologies thereby providing future options and flexibility to determine the impact of each method; (2) is simple to implement - minimizes disruptions; (3) is easy to maintain long term; and (4) is scalable - to meet your future needs. At Stratman Solutions, we began our “CECL” journey with a common sense approach. We developed a solution that could both support our current reporting and compliance needs, and also provide the flexibility we’ll need in the future. Early in our journey, we determined we wanted more than an automated calculation/ reporting tool - only used on a quarterly basis. We wanted a notable return on our data collection and data mining efforts. To that end, we included asset management and asset (action) planning features within our CECL solution. Once finalized, we appropriately named our CECL solution “Asset Quality Management (AQM).”

Cloud Computing and Blockchain Technologies: Their Future Use to Support International Trade and Supply Chain Finance A combination of Cloud and Blockchain will potentially transform the current paper-based trade finance approach for the processing and management of trade transactions into a more inclusive digital and efficient platform. Cloud computing and Blockchain Technology also have the potential to expand the intermediation of a bank’s involvement in open account transactions. Banks are taking a great interest in Blockchain Technology as a potential way of unblocking complex processes that involve different third party touch points. A technology provider that fails to develop its approach to Cloud computing and to the Blockchain developments mentioned in this paper may find that existing clients move away from them at time of renewal and that they are disqualified from RFIs as Cloud- and Blockchain- based solutions become critical selection criteria. This whitepaper on Cloud computing and Blockchain Technology Covers: Transactional banking-The way forward the trade Network Data-Flow –Cloud-based Blockchain Technology Trading. How new technology is forcing disruption in the transaction banking sector Why adoption of Cloud computing by a financial organization will represent a major change to its existing technology management, resource and policies.
