Further details

IFRS 17, Insurance Contracts, replaces IFRS 4, Insurance Contracts, which was introduced in 2004 and allowed insurers to use their existing insurance accounting policies under local Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP).

The clock shows just over one year until insurers need to present their opening balance sheet on a whole new reporting basis.

Now, more than ever, there is a sense of urgency among all insurers to work through the implementation considerations minimize costs and fast-track implementation.

Following the webcast, participants should be able to explain at a high level:

  • What works well among Fortune 500 preparers and what can be enhanced to aid efficiency.
  • Leading practices in testing IFRS 17 solutions to ensure they are fit for purpose and can be deployed with confidence.

This webcast will last approximately 60 minutes. It will be recorded and a link circulated for those unable to attend.

We look forward to you joining us on this webcast.
