Accounting for Credit Losses in CRE: A Case Study Webinar

Credit loss forecasting models are only as effective as the data on which they were built, and few, if any, were designed to capture the effects a sudden pandemic would unleash on the U.S. economy. In times like this, how are financial institutions determining the right amount to set aside for future credit losses? In this discussion, panelists presented a case study on an approach to quantitatively model credit risk in a range of economic scenarios, and adjust the results to capture information that models may not consider.

In this session, we discussed the mechanics of distress in the CRE debt markets, and offer insights into what's next as economic reopening efforts ensue.
