08 Jun, 2017

The European Banking Authority (EBA) has published its 2018 EU-wide stress test draft methodology and templates. The exercise will cover 70% of the EU banking sector and will, for the first time, incorporate IFRS 9 'Financial Instruments'.

For banks starting to report under IFRS 9 in 2018, the 2018 EU-wide stress test takes into account the impact of the implementation of IFRS 9 on 1 January 2018 both in terms of starting point and projections.

The final methodology will be published as the exercise is launched, at the beginning of 2018, and the results to be published in mid-year 2018.
