Insurers attack EU’s decision to delay IFRS 9 adoption

The UK’s insurance representative body has hit out at the European Union for
failing to endorse the IASB’s new standard on financial instruments.

In a letter to the Financial Times Peter Vipond, the Association of British
Insurers’ director of financial regulation, attacked the “increased
politicisation” of the standard setting process and the EU’s approach to IFRS 9.

“It was pressure from the European Commission earlier this year that prompted
the IASB to bring out IFRS 9. It is unhelpful that pressure from within the EU
has stalled the endorsement process. This confusion helps nobody in the end,”
wrote Vipond.
