On Demand Webinar: Meeting and exceeding the IFRS 17 challenge

Join this on demand webinar from Finextra, in association with Oracle and PwC and listen to experts discuss how firms should approach the IFRS 17 implementation and delivery process.

IFRS 17 for Insurance Contracts brings a considerable challenge in the way insurance contracts need to be treated. There is a heavy reliance on actuarial calculations which means there is a need for significant alignment between actuarial, finance and IT functions.

The standard has significant implications on technology and the state of the current architecture, especially where there are significant legacy and hangovers from acquisitions. By leveraging the standard, insurance firms can not only process and analyse current and historical data but also see the impact on the CSM (Contractual Service Margin) under the three different methods- General Measurement Model (GMM), Premium Allocation Approach (PAA) and Variable Fee Approach (VFA).

Even with the extension of the deadline to January 2022, that standard would have significant implications on management, strategy and IT systems, as well as on P&L and P&L volatility. The transition from IFRS 4 to IFRS 17 will be complex.

During the webinar, we will discuss: 

  • Consolidating and managing data across Actuarial and Finance
  • Flexibility required in the management of Cohorts
  • Automating measurement and projection analysis
  • Impact on accounting and financial statements
  • Efficiently generating and communicating results internally and to shareholders
  • Alignment of IFRS 9 and IFRS 17

Speakers include:

  • Akhil Arora, Principal, Financial Services Analytics, EMEA, Oracle
  • Viswanathan Swaminathan, Senior Manager, PwC
  • Lisa Walker, Insurance Policy & Technical Lead, HM Revenue & Customs
  • Anna Milne, Editor, Finextra

Investment and Asset Management Workshop

Investment and Asset Management Workshop

23rd March 2020

Join Finextra Research for its second Sustainable Finance Live event on 23 March 2020 to peel away the misnomers and ‘greenwashed’ ideas about sustainable finance and explore the ways the industry can take proactive steps to deliver the UN SDGs. Now open for registration, the one-day immersive event showcases a smattering of expert contributors who will introduce the day with insight into the green projects being launched across asset management and investment banking. Attendees will first Lean In to the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development’s exploration of their experience accessing early stage investment, and Refinitiv’s discussion of the data reporting difficulties that face ESG-minded portfolio managers. Leaning Back, attendees will be given the opportunity to question industry leaders on the finer details of these concepts and projects at a series of roundtables. By the afternoon workshop session, it will be more than apparent that not all ESG polices are created equal, so it’s vital to cut through the hype to see precisely how each link in the value chain helps work towards achieving the UN SDGs. Attendees will finally Learn by Doing in the workshop by taking the key learnings from earlier sessions and carving out a real-world solution to an ESG dilemma posed at the outset of the event.
