"It was a well-organized seminar bringing up current issues and how the crisis has affected modelling of credit risk. It was useful in raising more awareness in the changing approach we all have to follow in looking at and interpreting figures and building up expected figures and building up expected figures both short-term and long-term."
Credit Risk Manager, European Commercial Bank, UK
Agenda Highlights

Day 1

Sessions 1 and 2: The background to IAS 39 (which preceded IFRS 9) and why it was considered relevant, why was IFRS 9 implemented, what are the requirements?

Sessions 3 and 4: Important features of credit impairment requirement, how do the Basel regulatory capital rules fit in? and interpretation of the accounting requirements of IFRS 9 in a model context


Day 2

Sessions 5 and 6: The estimation (and vagaries) of probability of default, loss given default, exposure at default, how are discount rates estimated – what is appropriate and acceptable? SICR – how is it estimated and what are the rules governing curing and restructuring

Session 7 and 8: Worked examples of how to implement these rules: sourcing of PDs, scaling of PDs in time, how to deal with PDs with curing built in, payment holidays, LGD estimation in the absence of LGD data, SICR calculations, simple calculations underlying the overall ECL estimate.


"Thank you for an excellent presentation Dr Gary. Our risk specialists are most grateful for your clear explanations, humour and insights."
Head of IFRS 9 Specialist Financial Regulator, GCC

IFRS 9 is an International Financial Reporting Standard (IFRS) published by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) which addresses accounting for financial instruments.

While the standard addresses the classification and measurement of financial instruments, hedge accounting and impairments this course focuses on the last of these – credit impairments – and how they are measured, evaluated and assessed.

Delegates involved in IFRS9 models, validation, regulatory compliance and reporting roles will gain practical essential knowledge about, credit risk and credit impairments, and its application to real-world project phases and tasks.

"It provided a different angle in the way we should assess the business post COVID."
Credit Risk Manager, Corporate Bank, Kuwait
Who Should Attend

Designed primarily for credit risk managers, quantitative credit analysts and auditors previous delegates include those from national financial regulators of IFRS9 model validation projects,  operations, IT, HR, consulting firms and credit risk software vendors.
