Understanding IFRS 9 Training Course

The New Regime for Financial Instruments

19 - 20 October 2017

Radisson Blu Edwardian Grafton, London

Over two intensive days you will develop a detailed understanding of a wide range of topics and issues, including:

  • Learning to apply the new criteria for asset classification, and how they might require a reassessment of existing products and business models
  • Exploring the practical and commercial challenges posed by the change from an “incurred loss” to an “expected loss” impairment regime
  • Unpicking the detail of the revised hedge accounting model: what has changed, what has not changed, and what may be yet to change – and whether it will help readers of financial statements
  • Plotting a safe route through the minefield of increased disclosure requirements, and their potential impact on market perceptions and stakeholder relationships

The course features a case study of the 2015 and 2016 published financial statements rare ‘early adopters’ of this critical new IFRS Standard.
