Fundamentals of IFRS-17 and the implementation roadmap

“Risk Management will soon become a ‘Hot Job’- Bloomberg

The new accounting standard on insurance contracts, IFRS 17 is about to replace IFRS 4 from January 2023 onwards. The objective of IFRS 17 is to provide increased transparency of the profitability of insurance companies, and to provide enhanced comparability between the financial statements of insurance companies worldwide. Given the complexity of the standard, this is a high time when insurance companies should team up for smooth and effective implementation of IFRS-17.
