IFRS 9 is effective from 1 January 2018 and replaces IAS 39 Financial Instruments: Recognition and Measurement. It introduces a logical, more principles-based approach to classification and measurement of financial assets based on the business model and nature of cash flows. The new forward looking impairment model requires earlier and more timely recognition, and ongoing assessment of credit losses. The hedge accounting requirements are more principles-based and aligned to common risk management practices.

This course provides a brief overview of IAS 39, and covers an in-depth analysis of principles in IFRS 9. The course has numerous examples and illustrations to explain the business model and cash flow characteristics test for classification of financial assets, amortised cost and fair value measurement of financial assets and financial liabilities, de-recognition of financial assets (retained servicing, continuing involvement etc.), measurement of expected credit losses and the accounting and impact of different types of hedges on financial statements.
