As the new IASB insurance contracts accounting standard, IFRS 17, enters the final stages before publication, forward-looking insurers are planning for implementation.

While IFRS 17 is being introduced with the aim of bringing greater transparency to financial reporting by insurers, its implementation has the potential to be complex and occupy many people over a long period of time. At KPMG we have invested in order to help our clients plan for implementation efficiently and effectively.

We will look at three things:

  • Questions insurers should consider if they haven’t yet started their planning for implementation.
  • The accounting and actuarial policy choices insurers may want to explore as they consider the financial impact of the proposed standard on their business.
  • Lessons learned from previous change programs.

Plus, we will share the latest news on what we can expect when we see a final standard. The webcast will last approximately 1 hour.

As investors and regulators strive for ever-accelerated reporting timetables, insurers will want to streamline processes and ensure clear, concise communication to shareholders, investors and other key stakeholders. KPMG’s approach is distinctive, recognizing that this is more than just a technical accounting and actuarial issue.
