In the ninth podcast of the series, Mary H Trussell and Joachim Kölschbach look at how the sector is coping in the run-up to adoption of IFRS 17 Insurance Contracts and how companies are progressing with their implementation projects

 “It’s important for insurers to remember that even if there were to be a potential change in the implementation date of 2021, the reason for any potential deferral would be because there's so much they need to be doing to prepare.”

Mary H. Trussell 
Global Insurance Change Lead Partner


“Many are going to face real issues if they don’t get a move on. There is no magic bullet, no one size fits all. All insurers have different business models, regulatory environments, systems and processes.” 

Joachim Kölschbach
Global IFRS insurance leader
