Webcast: Understanding the revisions to IFRS 17 - and how to do more with less

In our experience many insurers still have much work to do to be ready for 2023. Many, particularly in the current environment and the challenges presented by COVID-19, will be highly focused on cost containment.

To help you understand how to spend your time and money wisely to accelerate the implementation of IFRS 17, we are offering the upcoming webcast to discuss the revisions to IFRS 17 and what this means for your projects.

During the webcast, we will discuss practical actions and steps insurers should be taking now to ensure they can meet the revised deadline with confidence, along with lessons learned from previous complex standard implementations that can be applied to your projects.

Date: Wednesday 15 July 2020
Time: 8:00am (EDT)/1:00pm (BST)/2:00pm (CEST)
