Abstract: In the current thesis, it will be evaluated how the replacement of accounting standard on measurement and recognition of financial instruments (IAS 39 to IFRS 9) will affect the global banking sector, with a closer look to the Cyprus Banking Sector. The guidelines of the old IAS 39 and new IFRS 9 accounting standard will be explained in detail. The variety of the financial instrument in banks’ Balance Sheet will be mentioned considering the Annual Reports of the biggest European Banks.
