IFRS9 Models in a Rapidly Changing Macroeconomic Environment

An important requirement of IFRS9 is the inclusion of forward-looking information, both for expected credit losses and risk stage determination.  The IFRS9 models are calibrated on historical data which do not necessarily reflect the currently relevant dynamics (such as observed in the COVID-19 pandemic and the recent energy crisis). This poses challenges to the use and design of the models. In this presentation we will discuss several challenges and potential solutions, using examples from practice.

Some examples that are covered:

  • Government support measures during COVID-19 pandemic distort the impact of macroeconomic variables on credit risk
  • Extreme GDP shocks during the pandemic exceed values for which models are calibrated
  • Currently important drivers such as inflation and energy prices for credit risk are less relevant in the period covered by historical data

Seemless Integration of Credit and Rating Processes

The regulations require”each obligor shall be assigned to an obligor grade as part of the credit approval process”. However, the rating process is based on a number of statistical models that consider information differently from human beings conducting credit assessments. This requires a concerted effort to harmonize both processes as one.

  • What are the inter-relationships between the credit and rating processes?
  • How to derive ratings from the credit process in a manner that reflects traditional credit assessments?
  • How can you apply human judgement to the models with information from the credit assessment that is not captured by the models?
  • How to integrate ESG into the credit and rating processes?
