Changes in fair value due to credit risk

On 26th July 2013, the European Banking Authority (EBA) published its final draft Implementing Technical Standards (ITS) on supervisory reporting. In addition to requirements for leverage and liquidity ratios, these also contain new disclosure templates for common reporting (CoRep) and for financial reporting (FinRep), which are due for initial submission to the supervisory authority on 31st March 2014 and 30th September 2014, respectively. One aspect widely discussed in this context is the marked increase, compared to IFRS 7, in the disclosure of changes in fair value attributable, with regard to assets, to credit risk of the counter party and, for liabilities, to credit risk of the entity itself. Changes in fair value resulting from an entity’s credit risk will also play a more prominent role under IFRS 9.

In light of this, a renewed consideration of the methodology and processes for determining changes in fair value due to credit risk is strongly advisable. Our white paper on this issue contains a brief overview of the requirements and summarizes the key points which, in our view, should be examined when implementing the requirements.
