Preparing for IFRS 17 accounting standards and the impacts to your business

Thursday, 21 March 2019 | Kuala Lumpur

While the new International Financial Reporting Standard 17 (IFRS 17) will take effect in 2022, the clock is ticking, and insurers should start preparing now. This change in accounting standards will require insurers to re-strategize their portfolio across their product management and business teams. If approached strategically, complying with IFRS 17 can be foundational for your company's future.

New regulation, new rules and system required for compliance

In collaboration with Dell EMC, join us at this exclusive executive roundtable where financial services consultants like KPMG and EY, together with SAS will show how it is possible to manage the different impacts that this new standard will have on:

  • Managing and integrating data from the different source systems
  • Openness and transparency of calculations for the valuation of insurance liabilities across the different contractual group levels
  • New disclosure reports and financial statements for IFRS 17
  • Robust finance and actuarial controls to provide audit logs and exceptional handling

IFRS 17 is about turning compliance into an opportunity, and the clock is ticking.
