The Essential GAAP Update for Banks and Other Financial Institutions (2017)

Banks and other financial institutions have unique and sometimes complex transactions that follow special accounting rules not applicable to other companies. Furthermore, the entire industry has been subject to increased regulatory scrutiny in recent years.

This one-day seminar offered via Executive Education, designed for financial executives, managers and others responsible for accounting and reporting by banks and other financial institutions, provides an in-depth update of recent developments impacting the financial services industry as a result of recent standard setter and regulatory activities. Through the use of class exercises and illustrative examples, these developments are not only “presented”, but also “discussed” to emphasize the impact on these unique entities.
