Lessons for success: Preparing for IFRS 17

Thursday May 11, 2017 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM EDT
From IFRS Institute

KPMG IFRS Institute


Event Overview

Please note that CPE credit will only be available to live participants in the Americas/EMEA session (on May 11). 

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. KPMG member firms have invested in order to help clients plan for implementation efficiently and effectively.

The fifth in our webcast series – Lessons for the future: Preparing for IFRS17 – we will cover the latest updates from the IASB, key accounting and actuarial policies to consider and questions to help guide your planning for implementation. We will also look at lessons learned from previous change programs.

Following this webcast, participants will be able to explain:

  • The questions to ask themselves as they plan for the implementation of the standard once it is final
  • The key accounting and actuarial policy choices and decisions available to them as they consider the financial impact of the proposed standard on their business
  • Some lessons learned from previous change programs that should be considered during implementation
