Fast-Tracking IFRS 17 Implementation
Thursday, February 25 at 12:30 PM – 2:00PM ET | via Webex Events

Across the globe, insurers are counting down to the January 1, 2023 effective date for IFRS 17 implementation. Insurers have just over a year to start their parallel runs and present their opening balance sheets on the new reporting basis. Starting the process now will require insurers to fast-track their implementations and accelerate key decisions early in 2021. Join our webinar to hear a discussion of these areas:

  • Policy and methodology topics that can and should be addressed early in 2021
  • Learning from current deployment projects to help fast-track implementation of IFRS 17
  • Topics that might require further guidance from the industry and regulators
  • Looking beyond 2021: Emerging practices on integrating IFRS 17 key performance indicators (KPIs) for regulatory and management reporting
