IFRS9 Matters: Impact on Asset and Treasury Management

The mandatory adoption of IFRS9 (a comprehensive accounting standard on financial instruments), which has been postponed since 2013, will become effective in 2018. There are significant areas that require special attention of the asset and treasury managers.

The seminar will cover:
  • From IAS39 to IFRS9 - the journey of mark-to-market accounting for financial instruments
  • Impact to the asset managers (insurance companies, pension fund, banks, broker dealer, hedge funds, bond funds etc.) - the types of risks they face and how IFRS9 will affect AUM (asset under management), NII (net investment income), RGL/URGL (realised and unrealised gain and loss) and therefore investment performance
  • Impact to the treasurers - the risks they need to manage and how IFRS9 will affect their hedging strategy
  • The way forward

Speaker:   Mr Peter Wong
Speakers: Director of PricewaterhouseCoopers Consulting Hong Kong Limited
Speakers: Member of HKMA/TMA Working Group on Corporate Treasury Development
