About the Webinar

With debt issuance up to record levels and big-name, big-dollar public bankruptcies on track to exceed the previous peak from the Great Recession in the 2009 annum, balance sheet risk from bad debt write-offs have never been higher. Under the recently implemented Current Expected Credit Losses (“CECL”) guidance, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) has required that trade receivables be adjusted to account for their expected bad debts using forward-looking predictive modeling rather than simply historical estimates. Join a trio of CreditRiskMonitor’s leading subject matter experts as they discuss how our industry-leading, forward-looking bankruptcy predictive analytics like the FRISK® and PAYCE® scores when combined with trade contribution, can significantly improve the working capital risk management and specifically address the compliance requirements of CECL.
