    Will Newcomer and Bart Everaert to offer strategies to help financial institutions transition to the new standards

    Wolters Kluwer today announced that Will Newcomer, Vice President of Product & Strategy, U.S. Risk & Compliance, and Bart Everaert, Market Manager, will speak on the ever-changing role of risk management and evolving liquidity and Current Expected Credit Loss (CECL) regulations as part of the Risk Americas 2017 conference on May 23-24, 2017 at the Hilton Midtown in New York City.

    Risk management should be an integral part of the way your firm conducts business,” said Newcomer.  “Wolters Kluwer is committed to helping organizations integrate best practices into their strategic planning and business decision-making processes in order to better address challenges they may face during the transition to the new standards.”

    Everaert will discuss liquidity on the panel, “Incorporating Liquidity Risk Requirements into One Unified Process for Strategic Integration,” which takes place on Tuesday, May 23 at 10:50 a.m. ET. During his presentation, Everaert will examine how to collate results to use for strategic decisions and look at the distinctions between regulatory tactical and strategic resolutions.

    Later that afternoon, Newcomer will speak on “Forecasting the Future: An Overview of CECL and Future Predictions” at 2:00 p.m. ET. During his presentation, Newcomer will evaluate to what extent CECL is on the radar for financial institutions as well as provide guidance on predicting loss under forward scenarios.

    Newcomer has more than 35 years of experience in risk and finance positions with major and regional banks as well as leading technology firms, making him uniquely qualified to lead clients to the forefront of integrated finance, risk and compliance solutions. In addition, he uses his extensive experience in enterprise-wide management information systems to help financial institutions in the areas of risk adjusted performance management, budgeting and planning, asset and liability management, incentive compensation, financial reporting and stress testing.

    Bart Everaert is responsible for the vision and strategic outline of Wolters Kluwer’s Finance, Risk and Reporting-Americas risk and finance offerings. Everaert started his career in 2005 with the firm’s Professional Services team, where he led various projects in the U.S., Europe and Middle East on capital adequacy, liquidity, stress testing, IFRS 9 and regulatory reporting initiatives. This experience has made him a big believer in the need for an integrated framework across an organization’s finance, risk and reporting areas.
