Now, more than ever, community banks find themselves struggling to meet the stringent standards of accountability and risk management by regulators that leading financial organizations have striven to adhere to for over a decade. The Allowance for Loan Losses (”ALLL”) represents one of the most important methods to counter the credit risk a bank faces. Each institution is held accountable for developing and documenting a comprehensive, systematic and consistently maintained process to estimate the validation of ALLL in their financial statements and regulatory reporting purposes.
PRISM is P&G Associates’ premier Allowance for Loan Losses calculator. Utilizing a dynamic and intuitive process which allows an institution to use and document reserve percentages for specific risk categories based on historical loss percentages as adjusted for various qualitative factors, PRISM provides a step-by-step process to document an institution’s assessment of such factors. The application accounts for data, factors (both internal and external) and variables that could affect an institution’s ALLL estimate, and its easy-to-use interface provides guidance on what should be inputted into your calculation to ensure the best estimate possible.
PRISM takes the often hard, complex and diverse issues faced in an accurate ALLL estimation and streamlines them into an efficient, straight-forward process that ensures control over one of the most pertinent risks to any bank.
The application is consistently maintained and updated based on current national economic data and factors, historical loss trends and peer analysis. PRISM works around the clock to ensure that you are not left behind due to shifting regulatory emphasis, and is a program that will evolve to match both the needs of your financial institution and the regulations that require excellence.
