 RiskMinds top take-away insights:

  • IFRS9 concepts are prone to highly theoretic and not yet practical interpretation. The best theoretically desirable approach is not always the best practical one.
  • It is imperative to have close alignment with relevant auditors and regulators
  • Sound internal governance and explicit application of judgement to determine the organisation's interpretation (and choices) in defining its IFRS9 framework is also a must.
  • There needs to be clear definition of "run the bank" or "business as usual" policies and processes in place.
  • Accounting regulators or enforcement agencies have a more specific mandate to ensure correct implementation.
  • It will be best practice to prepare for regular monitoring of likely stage transitions.
  • Harmonized implementation of IFRS9 is easily done with a harmonized IT implementation, but IT implementation will need to be consistent with provision governance and changes documented and approved.
