In an effort to keep informed its clients, especially professionals in the insurance sector, about the particular IFRS and update them on other related regulatory issues, KPMG Academy offers this highly recommended training on IFRS 17 insurance contracts and solvency II. It is expected that the new standard will introduce a comprehensive new accounting model that will give users of financial information a whole new perspective on the financial statements of the insurers. Furthermore, it will herald an end to the lack of comparability in the insurance sector. It will also increase transparency about the profitability of new and in-force businesses and will provide users additional insights into the financial health of an insurer.
It is certain that all insurers will see impact on their reported numbers, whilst it is projected that the implementation of the standard will require substantial effort.
By the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:
1. IFRS 17: Overview
2. IFRS 17: Scope and measurement model
3. IFRS 17: Measurement modifications
4. IFRS 17 Insurance Contracts: disclosures, acquisitions and transition
5. Solvency II: Overview and latest updates
6. Solvency II: Differences and similarities with IFRS 17
This seminar is essential for the insurance sector’s CEOs, financial controllers, finance managers, finance directors, actuarial professionals, risk managers, accountants and auditors who wish to be informed about this new IFRS standard and legislation. It is also beneficial for professionals in the insurance sector who are involved in the financial statements preparation process and / or the provision of compliance services.
