The IASB has posted to its website a new issue of the 'Investor Perspectives' dealing with the ED on Impairment the IASB issued yesterday. Also, the IASB has announced a forthcoming webcast that will explain the proposals in the ED.

In Of "Great Expectations"—Accounting for Expected Credit Losses in Financial Instruments IASB member Patrick Finnegan explains why the IASB believes investors will benefit from the suggested new impairment model. He shows how the proposals differ from current IFRSs, summarises the proposals and gives three examples showing how the concepts would be applied to financial instruments such as loans or debt securities.
