Are you involved in the valuation of insurance contract liabilities for life insurance or property and casualty insurers? What about risk management, pricing, or other activities that require an understanding of these valuation methodologies? If so, you are probably aware that a new accounting standard called IFRS 17 (International Financial Reporting Standards) is coming, that will change the way that valuations are conducted in the future. This webcast will provide a basic overview of the new IFRS standard as it currently stands, which should help both practitioners and users of valuations understand some of the financial reporting challenges that will arise over the next few years.
