ERM Glossary: Impairment allowance
[this page | pdf | references | back links]
A (loan) impairment allowance is a
provision held on a balance sheet as a result of the raising of a charge
against profit for impairment losses arising in a lending book. An impairment
allowance may either be individual (i.e. relating to an individual loan) or
collective (i.e. relating to a collection of loans).
