IFRS 9: Advanced Financial Instrument

Classification and Measurement

               • Classification under IFRS 9 for investments in debt instruments is driven by the entity’s business model and their contractual cash flow characteristics.

               • A financial asset is measured at amortised cost if both of the following criteria are met:

                               • The asset is held to collect its contractual cash flows; and

                               • The asset’s contractual cash flows represent ‘solely payments of principal and interest’ (‘SPPI’)


               • Based on Expected Loss Model
