Mr. Erickson leads the CECL & ALM and Concentration Risk Management business lines and assists with Mergers & Acquisitions.
Mr. Erickson joined the firm in September of 2010. Matt graduated from the Carlson School of Management with a bachelor’s degree in finance. He plays an integral role in the firm’s fair value business line and leads analysts on financial institution mergers and acquisitions. Having advised and managed on over 150 mergers, Matt is an expert on business combination strategy, valuation, and accounting. Matt uses his knowledge of credit risk analytics and quantitative analysis skills to strengthen the firm’s proprietary valuation models, develop assumption input databases, and track industry-wide performance trends on loans and deposits. This led him to develop Wilary Winn’s robust Current Expected Credit Loss (CECL) solution. The CECL analysis utilizes statistical correlations between historical economic conditions and loan performance in order to incorporate future economic projections when vectoring assumptions in the firm’s discounted cash flow model.
Additionally, Matt leads Wilary Winn’s asset liability management (ALM) business line, performing ongoing ALM analysis and ALM validations. Matt has leveraged his knowledge obtained from the fair value business line to assist in the development of the firm’s industry-leading ALM practices. Furthermore, he has developed in-depth analyses to integrate concentration risk and capital stress testing into Wilary Winn’s ALM framework. He also consults ALM clients on CECL and credit risk, liquidity stress, total return optimization, budgeting and forecasting, investment and lending decisions, regulatory actions, and risk-based pricing strategies.
