Discover the steps to IFRS 9 success

28 July 2015 / Ben O'Brien

Despite the many factors to consider when implementing the new IFRS 9 requirements, the process can be broken down into manageable steps, which our Risk Practice Director Ben O’Brien discussed recently with Global Banking and Finance review.

Evolution not Revolution

Even though the measurement of lifetime expected loss represents a new challenge for organisations, we believe that the tools for forecasting losses over extended periods under different economic conditions are likely to exist already within risk and finance teams through their work on business planning and stress testing. It’s a matter of knowing how to apply this knowledge to IFRS 9.

If it feels like the advice and industry guidance on IFRS 9 is directing you towards a development heavy project, Jaywing’s loss forecasting experts can support your organisation to build upon existing credit risk infrastructures to achieve IFRS 9 compliance without unnecessary development.
