A complimentary live event from SAS

SAS Insurance Risk Forum:
Perspectives on IFRS 17

March 14 | 787 Seventh Ave.| New York City

IFRS 17 will significantly change the way insurers manage their business. International insurance organizations that have US GAAP as the primary basis of accounting are further challenged with supporting both standards in parallel.

The coordinated application of US GAAP and IFRS financial reporting and disclosures will undoubtedly affect data, IT infrastructure, technology, accounting and actuarial requirements now and in the future. However, insurers can create business value across the organization with the right software tools and technology.

Join SAS and our guest speakers for this one-day, live event designed to inform, support and drive successful IFRS 17 compliance. Listen in, ask questions and leave with the answers you need as we explore:

  • An overview of IFRS accounting changes, IFRS 17 and IFRS 9.
  • Changes happening in GAAP accounting for insurers, LDTI and CECL.
  • Technology and infrastructure considerations for IFRS 17 implementation.
  • What your peers are thinking about as they start their IFRS 17 projects.
