International Financial Reporting Standard 9

Supporting your journey towards IFRS 9 compliance

Are you ready for IFRS 9?

The deadline for International Financial Reporting Standard 9 (IFRS 9) adoption is fast approaching.  From 1 January 2018, all Financial Services organisations will need to ensure they have robust impairment models and processes in place to ensure full compliance with requirements.

What is IFRS 9?

IFRS 9 is a new far reaching regulation that will change the way financial services organisations classify, measure and account for assets.  It encompasses:

  • A logical model for classification and measurement
  • A single forward looking ‘Expected Loss’ impairment model
  • A substantially reformed approach to hedge accounting

Understanding the size and scale of the challenge

What makes IFRS 9 compliance challenging is that it will require the collection, use and tracking of information not previously used in existing impairment modelling or regulatory approaches.  The availability, quality and understanding of credit risk data and the associated tools used to analyse it will make the difference between success and failure.
