We’re circling back to CECL. There’s been some changes to the implementation of the standard that need discussing, but we also wanted to add a fresh perspective on the preparation. One of the things that came out in this conversation is the quality of the data that will be needed. Yes, that data may be more expensive, but there’s a lot to be said for knowing your loan portfolio’s data better than you currently do. The silver lining to this cloud is that the data we will have to collect will also benefit our marketing efforts.
