The introduction of IFRS 17 brings a once-in-generation change in insurance accounting standards that poses some tricky challenges for insurers. Along with important technical accounting decisions, insurers will need to review their processes to understand how the new numbers can be delivered.

This InsuranceERM webinar, held in association with Legerity, will explain the unique aspects of IFRS 17 and how current processes and systems may be challenged by its demands. Our presenters will describe some of the choices that firms have - and how that might affect systems architecture. They will also explain how IFRS 17 can be an opportunity for firms to streamline operations.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Impact on finance and actuarial systems
  • Technology approaches being taken by Insurers
  • Target system architecture
  • Options around CSM
  • Importance of data
  • How IFRS 17 can deliver business process improvements
