Our clients say

When considering providers for our CECL model validation, we sought a firm experienced with our CECL software solution. In addition to their thorough understanding of the software, Plante Moran’s ability to consider interactions between the software, our institution’s operations, regulatory guidance, and technical accounting requirements was extremely valuable. Our team had already invested significant time planning and designing the model, but Plante Moran was able to help us critically evaluate concepts and offer suggestions for ways to make improvements. Since we didn't have to spend time educating them on the software, we were able to focus on the appropriateness of the model assumptions and the related outputs and have already made enhancements to our model as a result.
