MFRS 139 has been very much criticised as being rules-based, complex and thus difficult to understand. Further, there were opinions that the incurred loss model under MFRS 139 results in late recognition of impairment loss. Accordingly, MFRS 9 was brought in to replace MFRS 139 that provides for a revised way of classifying and measuring financial assets, forward-looking expected loss model and reformed approach towards hedge accounting.

Overall, this training seeks to provide the participants with high level coverage of the essentials of MFRS 9, the challenges that are likely to come and the preparations that may be required.
