It is expected that IFRS9 adoption should lead to an increase in provisions (initially a balance sheet / retained earnings adjustment only with commentary on retrospective impacts). Typically, the increase is mostly a result of loss provisions for all accounts (regardless of a loss event) and the extension of the loss period from a typical 12 months to lifetime (e.g. for structured loans the remaining term of the loan plus time to default/write-off plus the recoveries window).
In our third roundup of 2018, we list the most popular blogs from our Credit Risk Management topic. Our credit risk blogs have mainly revolved around IFRS 9 and legislation changes this year, and have aimed to provide expert advice and insights into the current landscape.
