IFRS 9 is the new accounting standard dealing with financial instruments accounting. The largest change proposed by IFRS 9 is the introduction of an expected loss impairment model. The IFRS 9 Programme, managed by Global Finance Change, was established to deal with these changes and enable HSBC to report under the new requirements from the effective date of 1 January 2018. While IFRS9 has gone live in 1 January 2018, there are a number of key initiatives throughout 2018 to embed IFRS9 in business as usual (BAU) processes, and to improve the IFRS9 processes.
