Managing IFRS 9 Model under the Crisis

Learn about: Managing IFRS 9 Model Risk; Key Specific IFRS 9 Model Validation Issues; Managing and Validating IFRS 9 related Model Performance

Covid-19 has impacted the IFRS 9 expected credit loss (ECL) model and reporting, leading to challenges including model validation and economic scenarios modelling. Financial institutions are required to manage the IFRS 9 model and examine the credit risk under varying circumstances and assumptions. 

Model validation consequently becomes of even greater importance, as banks are now required to assess the lifetime loss expectation rather than just the previous one-year view, resulting in incorporation of forward-looking guidance and the development of appropriate models.  

The virtual course will consider the options and challenges in conducting IFRS9 model validation, key issues regarding IFRS 9 and the management approach to be taken. 

What will you learn?
  • Overview of the IFRS 9 modelling challenges 
  • The model risks within IFRS9
  • The issues relating to data quality and availability
