Sixth Global IFRS Banking Survey — No time like the present

Published on: May 24, 2016

Deloitte has issued its Sixth Global IFRS Banking Survey – No time like the present. This year’s version captures the current views of 91 banks — including 16 global systemically important financial institutions (G-SIFIs) — on how technical IFRS 9 impairment requirements and modelling challenges are being addressed.

It summarizes key findings such as:

  • Total estimated program budgets continue to increase. However, more than three quarters of these budgets have yet to be spent, with less than two years to transition date.
  • Almost half of banks think they do not have enough technical resources to deliver their IFRS 9 project and almost a quarter of these do not think that there will be sufficient skills available in the market to cover shortfalls.
  • 60% of banks either did not or could not quantify the transition impact of IFRS 9. Of the banks who responded, the majority estimate that total impairment provisions will increase by up to 25% across asset classes.
  • 70% of respondents anticipate a reduction of up to 50 bps in core tier 1 capital ratio due to IFRS 9. The vast majority does not know yet how their regulators will incorporate IFRS 9 numbers into regulatory capital estimates.
  • Most price makers expect that moving to an ECL model will have an impact on product pricing, while most price takers still think that this is unlikely to have an impact on product pricing.
  • In general, approximately half of participants are unsure of the answer to many key modelling design questions, which may delay banks’ IFRS 9 programmes.
  • Data quality and, in particular, the availability of the origination lifetime PD, is the biggest data concern for the majority of banks.
  • Despite IAS 8 requirements and EDTF recommendations, over 40% of banks do not plan to disclose quantitative information before 2018.
