Allowance for Loan and Lease Losses Quantifier

Like all banks, you spend significant time and effort managing the risk in the loan portfolio. Calculation of your bank's Allowance for Loan and Lease Losses (ALLL) is a key part of the risk management process and bottom line profitability. PCBB's Allowance for Loan and Lease Losses Quantifier (ALLLQ) helps your bank incorporate accounting and regulatory best practices by providing you with a systematic and repeatable process to calculate a meaningful assessment of your loss allowance.

Our service minimizes the financial impact (time and cost) on your institution by:

  • Giving you the flexibility to quickly choose from a variety of configurations/scenarios to better match your reserve to current and changing credit performance and economic conditions
  • Allowing you to focus on results and conclusions rather than on the task of accumulating and analyzing historic data
  • Saving your institution time and money by providing a comprehensive reporting and consulting solution to free up your staff for other activities.
  • Eliminating the need for software management (configuration, maintenance and upgrades)

When you work with PCBB, your bank will benefit from our years of experience partnering with banks just like yours. We bring the expertise needed to assist you in meeting regulatory expectations and improving risk management processes.
