SAS® Solution for IFRS 9 Features

Modeling & analytics

  • Enables you to fix data quality issues with customizable data quality rules.
  • Business rules for IFRS 9 stage allocation accelerate implementation. Rules may be modified as needed.
  • Prebuilt model templates, supporting a number of industry-standard techniques, greatly reduce coding requirements and simplify ongoing maintenance: 
    • Hazard models.
    • Markov chains.
    • Probability of default (PD) curves.
    • Loss given default (LGD).
    • Monte Carlo simulations.
    • State transition models.
  • A data model supports ECL calculations and financial disclosure reporting.
  • Integrated scenario editing allows for quick changes to risk factors for what-if analysis.
  • Provides query and filtering capabilities of any table for use in analysis.
  • Automated attribution model computes the ECL impact of different scenarios and explains period-to-period changes.
  • Perform post model adjustments.

Aggregation & reporting

  • Enables results aggregation and detailed data preparation for EBA FINREP reports.
  • Reporting templates, which can be modified as needed, automate reporting and disclosures:
    • 12-Month ECL.
    • Lifetime ECL.
    • Credit Quality.
    • Stage Allocation/Movement.
    • Reconciliation Report. 
    • IFRS 9 financial disclosure reports (e.g., stage, period-to-period changes).
  • Provides an embedded dashboard with data quality and management reports.


  • Project management dashboard monitors the status of monthly IFRS 9 production.
  • Unified workflow provides greater control and enables improved collaboration and transparency.
  • Provided workflows allow for faster implementation, while offering the ability to customize based on institution-specific requirements. Additional SAS scripts add flexibility and enable users to seamlessly integrate the disparate parts of the IFRS 9 process.
  • Easily customizable workflows, accounting rules and data flows allow process to adapt and evolve over time.
