- The contractual terms of the financial assets give rise on specified dates to cash flows that are solely payments of principal and interest on the principal amount outstanding.
A change in fair value of FVTOCI debt financial assets except for impairment gain or loss and foreign exchange gain or loss is recognized as other comprehensive income until derecognition. Upon derecognition the cumulative gain or loss previously recognized in other comprehensive income is reclassified to net profit or loss.
(b) FVTOCI equity financial assets

It does not flow through net profit or loss. However, dividends from such investments are recognized in net profit or loss as part of financial income.
