Long-term back-testing
Reversion rate validation
Model improvement strategies
Seize this opportunity to master back-testing and ensure your CECL model’s success in your first year.

What You’ll Learn

  • Identify Back-Testing Fundamentals: Learn the role of back-testing in evaluating
  • CECL models, including back-testing horizons and reversion rate calculation.
  • Conduct Short-Term Back-Testing: Assess CECL model accuracy for individual loan cohorts using current losses compared to forecasted losses, as well as identify potential biases in short-term loss forecasts.
  • Employ Long-Term Back-Testing: Evaluate overall model performance over extended periods using metrics like cumulative loss rate and provision coverage ratio and identify trends in long-term loss forecasts.
  • Confirm Reversion Rate Accuracy: Validate estimated reversion rates for different loan categories and take corrective actions if necessary.
  • Enhance CECL Modeling: Analyze back-testing findings, identify areas for improvement, and develop a plan for implementing model refinements.
