Mills County State Bank Selects Moody’s Analytics to Automate CECL Workflow

January 28, 2019

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 28, 2019--Moody’s Analytics, a leading provider of financial intelligence and analytical tools, announced today that Mills County State Bank has selected the Moody’s Analytics Current Expected Credit Loss (CECL) solution to streamline its compliance with the CECL accounting standard within its loan and investment portfolios.

The centerpiece of the Moody’s Analytics CECL solution is the ImpairmentStudio™ platform, which lets banks automate allowance calculation, analysis, reporting, and workflow. It also supports custom model development, validation, monitoring, and execution alongside a wide range of off-the-shelf loss-forecasting models.

Mills County State Bank will use the Moody’s Analytics CECL solution to significantly reduce the time required for its CECL calculations, while increasing its analytic capabilities across portfolios. Through the solution, the bank gains access to integrated economic scenarios, loss-rate and discounted-cash-flow models, audit trails, governance, and reporting capabilities, all in one package. The solution will also allow the bank to streamline process workflows by automating documentation and workflow management.

“We evaluated several other providers before choosing Moody’s Analytics; we were impressed not only with their solution but all the work they have done to integrate all of the different components needed to run our CECL calculations,” said Robert Hemsath, CEO of Mills County State Bank. “It’s incredibly convenient to have a comprehensive solution that also incorporates loan-level models, spreading functionality, and capital-planning tools, among others.”

“We are excited to have Mills County State Bank on board for our CECL solution,” said Eric Ebel, Managing Director at Moody’s Analytics. “We help institutions of all sizes solve their CECL challenges, and the ImpairmentStudio platform is a particularly good fit for smaller banks and credit unions, because it has the capability to grow with them as they increase assets either organically or through mergers.”
