Assessing the preparedness of financial institutions using standard approach for IFRS 9

Online Business Technologies  and the Center for Financial Professionals have launched a joint survey to screen the IFRS 9 impairment approach of banks using Standard Approach, and identify widely used simplification strategies that are allowed by the standard.

The objective of the survey was to

  • give an overview of the status of IFRS 9 implementation projects to serve as a benchmark for banks,
  • identify simplification opportunities, which are widely used by the banking community, and share ideas about these opportunities,
  • screen the expected budget and IT costs of IFRS 9 implementation to enable banks to compare their implementation project to others.
