This Fair Value Measurement of Financial Instruments under IFRS 13  training course is not available as a virtual classroom event.  We will run the event in London when face to face training and international travel are permitted.

IFRS 9 requires certain financial instruments to be measured at Fair Value whilst IFRS 13 provides the principles for fair valuing such instruments. The aim of the course is to develop the concepts and tools necessary for determining the fair value of certain financial instruments using excel.

The course does not aim to provide participants with black box calculators for determining fair values but instead to focus on the principles and techniques needed to build such models and understand their implications.

At the end of this seminar participants will:

  • Have an understanding of the requirements in IFRS 13 for determining the fair values of certain financial instruments.
  • Have an understanding of the principles and methods for determining such fair values.
  • Have applied the above to determine the fair values of instruments using excel.

Participants on this course might also be interested in our 3-day training on Methodologies for Determining Expected Credit Loss under IFRS 9.
