What is new with IFRS 9?

IFRS 9 is a new international accounting standard replacing IAS 39. IFRS 9 sets out the requirements for recognizing and measuring financial assets and financial liabilities. In particular, it sets requirements on the assessment of the risk of a loan portfolio, based on statistical forecasts of expected losses from defaulted loans. Now all loans, even perfectly performing ones must have provisions set aside for credit loss. Whilst IFRS provides global standards, local regulators can impose specific requirements in their markets. Penalties for non compliance may also be determined by local regulators. Fundamental to the new regulations is the requirement to accurately predict the probabiligy of a loans defaulting.
