Third Global IFRS Banking Survey — Still far from land?

07 Jan 2013

Deloitte has issued its ‘Third Global IFRS Banking Survey – Still far from land?’. The survey highlights the views of 70 of the world’s major banking groups and global systemically important financial institutions (G-SIFIs) on accounting change.

Key findings are:

  • Whilst there is still significant support  for the convergence process amongst banks, the majority surveyed consider the IASB and FASB are no longer on track to achieve this;
  • Banks are putting their implementation efforts on standby as the process continues to be subject to delay;
  • There is uncertainty about the ultimate outcome of financial instruments accounting change with an increase in the number of banks considering that the new requirements cannot be implemented in a way that will increase comparability between banks internationally; and
  • The capital and pricing impacts of changes such as impairment, debt valuation adjustments and the treatment of liquidity portfolios will be significant.
