  • Wolters Kluwer Webinar to Address IFRS 9, New CECL Rules

    June 24, 2016

    Jeroen Van Doorsselaere to speak on effective ways to prepare for and meet evolving regulatory expectations

    As firms come to grips with accounting standards such as International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) 9, the recently finalized Current Expected Credit Loss (CECL) standards, and other related frameworks, they are realizing that even slight variations in how those rules are envisioned and the mechanisms instituted to achieve them are likely to create confusion and potential inconsistencies.

    To learn more about these various regulatory requirements, Wolters Kluwer today announced that one of its leading experts, Jeroen Van Doorsselaere, vice president of Market Management, Risk and Finance, will host a global webinar to examine interpretations of key accounting standards now in place globally.

    The 45-minute webinar, “Accounting Standards Around the World” is being held Tuesday, June 28 at 12:00 p.m. EDT. During the webinar, Van Doorsselaere will address the following challenges and opportunities:

    • Examine interpretations around the globe
    • Provide an update on where banks are in the IFRS 9 implementation process
    • Discuss the newly finalized CECL standards and how IFRS9 implementation can complement CECL requirements
    • Define the main challenges of implementing expected credit loss standards
    • Share insight into the difficulties for banks that have adopted the Internal Ratings Based approach compared to banks on a standardized approach
    • Explore IFRS 9 and CECL in practice

    “These changes present a host of challenges to financial institutions. Firms in much of the world are preparing for IFRS 9, and with its emphasis on expected credit losses and forward-looking analysis, this regulation is a departure from the traditional incurred-loss model,” said Van Doorsselaere. “Additionally, any firm with a foothold in the U.S. must also contend with the new CECL standard as well as any other regulatory authorities and, in certain cases, regional, national and state agencies.”

    Van Doorsslaere leads Wolters Kluwer’s team of subject matter experts in International Accounting Standards and International Financial Reporting Standards. Van Doorsslaere has a strong background in finance and accounting, and in-depth knowledge of compliance requirements gained from closed-door discussions with national and central banks, commercial banks and industry bodies. In his role, he closely monitors the amendments published by the International Accounting Standards Board, providing commentary and analysis for clients in the financial services industry across the globe.
