IFRS 9: Preparing for the 2018 Go-Live

The introduction of the International Financial Reporting Standards 9 (IFRS 9) in January 2018 has created an opportunity for the strategic revamp of risk systems and operations. As banks overcome issues surrounding data quality, increase in credit risk and ECL estimations, they must begin finalizing their processes, systems and modeling in time for the go-live period in a few months. Although implementation efforts have progressed since the last webinar we held in 2016, there are still many more complex issues to be addressed. 

We've arranged four leading IFRS 9 Experts from the Austrian Financial Market Authority, BNP Paribas, Erste Group and Prometeia to discuss the remaining IFRS 9 concerns as the industry edges closer to the deadline. Join us on October 3rd to:

  • Bringing together the industry's leading lights
  • Understand the expectations of the regulator in the lead up to the IFRS 9 deadline and their intentions for harmonizing the standard across banks
  • Get clarity on how to handle the specific modelling and data challenges for banks using the standardized approach
  • Hear the panelists thoughts on ECL Model capability to predict downturns in advance 
  • Benchmark approaches to IFRS 9 model development for low default portfolios
  • Learn how robust IT systems can handle the expected data volumes that IFRS 9 impairment processes will generate and how this will lead to the overall enrichment of your institution's risk integration

The Speakers

David Grünberger - Head of IFRS 9 Enforcement Division Austrian Financial Market

Dr. David Grünberger, CPA heads the financial reporting enforcement unit at the Austrian Financial Market Authority. His team examines the financial communication of large corporations listed on European stock exchanges for accounting errors and misstatements. Any infringements are made public and prosecuted. This reduces information asymmetry in the market, maintains investors’ trust and confidence and improves the effectiveness of the European capital market. His team cooperates with the other EU- and Non-EU authorities such as the US-SEC to examine groups based in other jurisdictions.
