Financial Instruments – IFRS 9 standard in practice
IFRS 9 has been an important topic in the banking sector over the last two years and has become even more important since the date of its implementation, January 1, 2018. The final version of IFRS 9 reunites the stages of Classification and Measurement, Impairment, as well as accounting for covering the risks from the IASB project for replacing IAS 39 Financial Instruments: Recognition and Measurement.
IFRS 9 is an accounting standard; however, it has a significant impact on the banking sector’s risk management and business model.
The purpose of this seminar is to offer an overview on IFRS 9 requirements, the amendments made to the IAS 39 standard, as well as its impact on the bank’s governance once it is implemented.
By the end of the seminar, the participants will have an overview of the IFRS9 requirements, which are generally applicable for Classification and Measurement, as well as Impairment; they will understand the key changes compared to previous rules (IAS 39) and prudential requirements (Basel); they will understand the key challenges encountered in practice in the banking sector during the implementation; they will have an overview regarding the impact on the bank’s activity subsequent to the transition date.
This seminar is addressed to specialists in the financial-banking sector involved in accounting/methodology and credit risk management, whose activity is impacted by the implementation of IFRS 9.
