Expected Credit Loss (ECL) Modelling Workshop | GID 23001 | London

Expected Credit Loss (ECL) Modelling Workshop

Join our highly anticipated ECL modelling workshop in London, United Kingdom, to stay updated on the latest developments. Both IFRS 9 and IPSAS 41 necessitate ECL modeling to implement the new impairment framework.

The IFRS 9 Financial Instrument introduced a new impairment framework for recognizing expected credit losses promptly. However, many entities globally haven’t implemented it or built a robust Expected Credit Loss (ECL) model. Even for those who have, further improvements are needed to address the challenges posed by the unpredictability of COVID-19.

The IASB is conducting a post-implementation review (PIR) of the expected credit loss (ECL) requirements in IFRS 9. Identified areas include ECL recognition, credit risk increases, ECL measurement, and disclosures.

IPSAS 41 – Impairment of Financial Instruments using ECL Modelling

IPSAS 29’s impairment rules delay loss recognition, but IPSAS 41 introduces the ECL approach, eliminating impairment recognition thresholds. Effective January 1, 2023, IPSAS 41 replaces parts of IPSAS 29, mandating timely expected credit loss reporting.  The model requires entities to recognize expected credit losses at all times, with a dual measurement approach of either 12-month or lifetime expected credit losses.

This forward-looking approach broadens the information required for determining expected credit losses and provides financial statement users with better decision-making ability.

Our expert instructors will guide you through real-life examples and group case studies.  The instructor will also cover topics such as modelling data, back-testing issues, and best practices in light of the COVID-19 scenario. Gain a comprehensive understanding of the latest changes to IFRS 9 and learn how to improve your model.

Additionally, gain insights into the development and direction of ECL models and discuss the implications of new standards for your business. This workshop is ideal for professionals seeking to deepen their knowledge of impairment modelling and its impact.
