The Challenge

No matter where your institution is along the path to meeting the Impairment of Financial Assets requirements of the International Financial Reporting Standard 9 (IFRS 9), you face challenges. Apart from mastering the complexities of modeling 12-month and lifetime loss estimates from day one of booking new accounts, you need the means to perform these demanding calculations — involving more data and models — within the same monthly reporting periods. You need to facilitate dialog between Risk and Finance. And while implementing your solution, you must start transitioning your credit lifecycle strategies to deliver the results you want under the new conditions.

Solution Architecture

FICO IFRS 9 Impairment Solution

The FICO IFRS 9 Impairment Solution simplifies and accelerates the compliance process from end to end. Our high-performance IFRS 9 engine ingests vast amounts of diverse data as well as other customer information. It rapidly classifies accounts as Stage 1, 2 or 3, then forecasts Expected Loss (EL) by calculating Probability of Default (PD), Exposure at Default (EAD) and Loss Given Default (LGD) according to your chosen scenarios and probabilities for macro-economic, market and portfolio change. Using interactive tools, you can explore and adjust classification rules, scenarios and probabilities, as well as the underlying models, to assess the impact on EL. Once the forecast has been signed off on, generating financial reports is push-button easy. The entire process is transparent, documented and explainable—with drill down to the code level and unbroken lineage from raw data to published financials.
