The Central Bank of Egypt “CBE” has adopted IFRS in year 2008. In specific IAS 39 has a discussion about implementing a model that can derive the incurred credit losses for a pool of receivables/ loans, which was quite open for market development & practical initiatives.
From the part of the CBE, it has adopted same approach, which led to some wide different market practices, logic, and interpretations, which sometimes have been questionable on a wide scale basis!
So, I've thought to develop some sort of materials that can serve as a practical guidance for quantifying the credit risk, using different simple models, based on Basel II definitions of the risk components.
The intended users of this material are the credit risk professionals who conduct risk analysis, implement risk management policies, or/and are in charge of quantifying the credit risk for a loan portfolio (corporate & retail).
Also, other professionals or officers complying with IFRS, or CBE GAAP.
