Introduction to IFRS 9 for Banks and Other Financial Institutions:

IFRS 9 is an international financial reporting standard developed by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) that sets out the guidelines for financial instruments' recognition, measurement, presentation, and disclosure. This standard is particularly important for banks and other financial institutions as it provides guidance on how to account for and report their financial instruments.


The objective of the IFRS 9 course for Banks and Other Financial Institutions is to provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of the standard and its implications for financial reporting. The course aims to equip attendees with the necessary knowledge and skills to apply IFRS 9 in practice and ensure compliance with the standard.

Organizational Benefits:

Organizations that send their staff to attend the IFRS 9 course can expect several benefits, including:

  1. Enhanced financial reporting: The course helps participants gain a thorough understanding of the standard, enabling them to prepare accurate and reliable financial reports that comply with IFRS 9 requirements.
  2. Improved risk management: IFRS 9 introduces new provisions for the classification and measurement of financial instruments, as well as an expected credit loss model. By understanding these requirements, financial institutions can improve their risk management practices and make better-informed decisions.
  3. Compliance with regulatory requirements: Many jurisdictions have adopted IFRS 9 as the basis for financial reporting. By training their staff on this standard, organizations can ensure compliance with local and international regulatory frameworks.
