Accounting Policies, continued (d) Financial instruments, continued Non-derivative financial assets – Classification and subsequent measurement, continued Business model assessment, continued • how managers of the business are compensated (e.g. whether compensation is based on the fair value of the assets managed or the contractual cash flows collected); and Financial assets that are held for trading or managed and whose performance is evaluated on a fair value basis are measured at FVTPL because they are neither held to collect contractual cash flows nor held both to collect contractual cash flows and to sell financial assets. Assessment of whether contractual cash flows are solely payments of principal and interest (SPPI) In assessing whether the contractual cash flows are SPPI, the Group considers the contractual terms of the instrument. This includes assessing whether the financial asset contains a contractual term that could change the timing or amount of contractual cash flows such that it would not meet this condition. In making the assessment, the Group considers: • contingent events that would change the amount and timing of cash flows; • leverage features; • prepayment and extension terms; • terms that limit the Group’s claim to cash flows from specified assets; and • features that modify consideration of the time value of money (e.g. periodical reset of interest rates). Applicability to the Group The Group classifies its financial assets into one of the following categories: • Amortized cost • Fair value through other comprehensive income (FVOCI) Financial assets measured at amortized cost The Group’s non-derivative financial assets measured at amortized cost comprise cash and cash equivalents, term deposits, sovereign debt securities, loans and advances and due from related companies. The Group measures these assets at amortized cost as its business model is to hold them to collect contractual cash flows. Its contractual terms also gives rise to the receipt of principal and interest on specified dates. These financial assets are not reclassified subsequent to their initial recognition unless the Group changes its business model for managing these financial assets, in which case all affected financial assets are reclassified on the first day of the first reporting period following the change in the business model. These assets are subsequently measured at amortized cost using the effective interest method. The amortized cost is reduced by impairment losses. Interest income, foreign exchange gains and losses and impairment are recognised in profit or loss. Any gain or loss on derecognition is recognised in profit or loss.
