Welcome to the first edition of RegRadar. With publication of Basel III reforms in December 2017, the ongoing EBA RWA harmonisation programme and both the BoE & the ECB consulting on the Definition of Default for credit risk, forward planning and timely implementation is key to understanding how reforms will impact capital and compliance costs of current and future business plans.
IFRS9 Expected Credit Losses (ECL) are commonly calculated as the sum of the marginal future expected losses in each period following the reporting date, using PD, LGD and EAD components. ECL can also be calculated directly from expected future cash flows. This could be an attractive option for many short-term lenders, especially for those that cannot leverage existing PD, LGD and EAD models, as it requires developing a single cash flow model.
IFRS 9 (the new accounting standard) is fast approaching with many organisations already in full swing in terms of development and with their chasing pack firmly in the planning stages for design and build. But just how ready are you for the impending changes?

IFRS 9 is the new accounting standard from the International Accounting Standards Board for credit losses on portfolios of loans. It will come into effect in most jurisdictions for reporting periods starting January 2018. One of the key principles is that lenders should use relevant data that is reasonably available to assess the appropriateness of credit provisions.
IFRS9 is the new accounting standard from the IASB for credit losses on portfolios of loans that is expected to come into effect in January 2018 across at least 96 of 174 jurisdictions around the globe. Work in many banks and lenders is well progressed towards meeting the reporting deadline. I will not repeat the considerations required in the building of a new provision process here as that has been well covered in many places previously.
