    This 2-day interactive programme will focus on the specific challenges faced when dealing with the new requirements of IFRS9. Specifically, in the impairment area, where Accounting/Finance and Risk/Valuation/Modelling departments are required to align in a more robust fashion. Various perspectives like models, data and resources must seamlessly operate to ensure that overall risks are managed and mitigated. This programme will focus on the credit risk aspects of IFRS9 reporting and other requirements, and is designed to provide participants with a broad overview of IFRS9. At the same time, it will also delve into some details on issues related to credit risk modelling requirements. Extensive case studies, examples and discussions will feature throughout the programme.
