FAS 157 (ASC 820-10) – Fair Value Accounting
The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Statement 157 to "define fair value, establish a framework for measuring fair value in Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, and expand disclosures about fair value measurements." Clearwater created new reports allowing clients to define the pricing input levels for their security types at the general and individual security level and produced the required disclosure reports required by FAS 157.

FAS 115-2 (ASC 320-10-35) – Other-Than-Temporary Impairment (OTTI)
In April 2009, the Financial Accounting Standards Board's (FASB) issued FAS 115-2, which changed its standards for evaluating, recognizing and measuring other-than-temporary impairment (OTTI). FAS 115-2 compelled investors to re-evaluate their OTTI conclusions and make material changes in their accounting policies and previously taken impairment losses to ensure compliance. Clearwater adjusted their solution in less than six weeks to allow for the additional OTTI requirements and disclosures introduced in FAS 115-2, providing clients with a fully integrated, seamless solution before the June 15, 2009, effective date.
“If someone tasked with filing reports does so while applying principles based on FAS115-1 and is not aware of FAS115-2, they will make mistakes. A third-party provider specializing in these disciplines – with visibility into multiple industries – can accelerate the change implementation process.”
