As preliminary IFRS9 results are being released, many institutions have concerns about variations in point-in-time credit assessment and forward-looking credit forecasts. These measurements are responsive to the economic environment, and highly dependent on changes in an institution’s macroeconomic outlook.

As preliminary IFRS9 results are being released, many institutions have concerns about variations in point-in-time credit assessment and forward-looking credit forecasts. These measurements are responsive to the economic environment, and highly dependent on changes in an institution’s macroeconomic outlook. Moreover, the variance in provision charges amplified by IFRS9 stage transitions can simultaneously affect correlated segments in the portfolio.

As provision charges are bound to fluctuate significantly under IFRS9, many institutions are now bracing for increased volatility in earnings and deductions from Tier 1 capital under Basel. This webinar discusses risk measurement tools and techniques to help with the communication of volatile earnings and provision levels to senior stakeholders.

Topics include:

  • Methods available to anticipate earnings volatility.
  • Management of risk diversification in the credit portfolio.
  • Inclusion of IFRS 9 scenarios and portfolio management strategy with the credit decision process.

    Anticipating and Benchmarking Variance in IFRS 9 Expected Credit Losses

    Many financial institutions are designing their model overlay with a view to manage macroeconomic forecast uncertainty and model risks. For this purpose, aside from the expected credit losses, risk management teams can provide the finance department with more measurements to anticipate variability and uncertainty levels around expected credit losses. This document discusses risk measurements that can be leveraged to achieve these objectives.

    Webinar with the Asian Banker: Managing IFRS 9 expected credit losses and forecast

    For IFRS 9 impairment calculations, point-in-time forward-looking credit assessments are prone to be responsive to the economic environment and the periodic revision of the economic outlook. Therefore, the management of provision variances over time is a particular area of focus.

    Managing IFRS 9 expected credit losses variance and forecast uncertainty

    As financial institutions are currently focusing on the execution of their IFRS 9 program and solution integration, risk and finance teams are working together to anticipate their effect on the financial reports. Especially, on the impairment modeling side, point-in-time forward-looking credit assessments are prone to be more responsive to the surrounding economic environment than the through-the-cycle measurements in practice so far. As institutions are anticipating some variability of provisions levels in relation to evolving macro-economic assumptions as well as forecast uncertainty, the details of the macro-economic outlook and scenario assumptions as well as clarifications of provision variances over time, are set to be a particular area of focus.
