On 27 January 2016, we blogged that the European Banking Authority (EBA) had launched an impact assessment of International Financial Reporting Standard 9 (Financial Instruments) (IFRS 9).The EBA has now launched a second impact assessment of IFRS 9. The EBA expects that institutions will now be able to provide more detailed and accurate insights into their implementation of IFRS 9 as the information provided by respondents in the first exercise reflected the early stage of implementation. Approximately 50 institutions across the EU are participating in this latest assessment.
