Stocks have vaulted to new highs and seem oblivious to news that would normally derail most economies.

On October 16, 2019, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) unanimously approved delaying the implementation of the Current Expected Credit Losses (CECL) accounting standard until 2023 for most financial institutions. Under the revised plan, banks that file with the Securities and Exchange Commission, except those defined as smaller reporting companies, will still need to convert to CECL, beginning Jan. 1, 2020. All other institutions will have until 2023 to convert.
This development reinforces the ABA statement that CECL is “the most sweeping change to bank accounting ever.” In the end, CECL implementation will bring about greater discipline in the management, measurement, and forecasting of credit risk, potentially driving improved profitability in the long run.
Lenders have reached out to a variety of 3rd parties to help with the planning and implementation of the new accounting standard.
