Temenos Regulatory Compliance

International Financial Reporting Standard (IFRS) 9

For the first time, financial institutions will have to recognize not only credit losses that have already occurred but also losses that are expected in the future – is your financial institution prepared?

The IFRS 9 solution integrated with Temenos Transact is compliant with the rules under IAS 39. Now with IFRS 9, financial institutions have to analyze the business model information and the cash flow characteristics of their financial assets to determine whether the assets should be measured at amortized cost or fair value. You will also need to calculate the expected credit loss for your assets over either a 12-month or lifetime period. Temenos provides a standardized solution with the capability to support all three key areas as outlined below.
