Planning for the implementation of IFRS 17
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. To help you plan for implementation efficiently and effectively, at KPMG we have invited you to webcasts highlighting important issues.
In the fifth in our webcast series, Lessons for the future: Preparing for IFRS 17, 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.
Date: Thursday, 11 May 2017
Time: 9:00am EST/2:00pm GMT/3:00pm CET
Date: Friday, 12 May 2017 (on demand)
Time: 9:00am HK/11:00am Sydney
Join the webcast to hear:
Mary Trussell, Global Insurance Accounting Change Lead Partner, KPMG in Canada
Erik Bleekrode, Insurance Accounting Change Lead, KPMG in the Netherlands
Michael Lammons, Insurance Accounting Change Americas Coordinating Partner, KPMG in the US
Laura Gray, Principal, Actuary and Insurance Risk, KPMG in the US
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.
We would be happy to discuss any questions you might have in your preparation for IFRS 17.
