Prism: The ALLL Calculator

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.
