In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, a number of economies have seen their banking sector engage in loan restructuring—providing borrowers breathing room to face this severe negative shock. However, when conducted in large scale this type of forbearance can create uncertainty on the viability of the banking sector.

This webinar clarifies the treatment of restructured loans—in response to COVID-19—for Financial Soundness Indicator (FSI) Compilation. It also reviews foundational accounting and regulatory practices related to loan loss classification and provisioning for restructured loans. Finally, the webinar introduces a tool to track the evolution of restructured loans to for macro-financial monitoring purposes.
