This standard is significantly different in many areas compared its predecessor standard, IAS 39, and certain models and provisions in the new standard may be difficult to apply and require significant judgment.
The course will assist participants by providing them with the practical knowledge to understand the concepts and provisions to the standard and apply it to their portfolio of financial instruments. IFRS 9 applies to all companies and may require certain planning, system and process changes to apply it effectively. The new standard can significantly change financial instrument classification, measurement and impairment amounts and their timing of recognition. The course will likely be particularly relevant to certain industries as well (e.g. banking and other financial service industries).
