Onward Together
Brussels - 20 June, 2019

The worldwide implementation of IFRS 17 is likely to be one of the most disruptive changes to the insurance industry ever. This global standard was designed to be principles-based and to apply to all types of insurance. This led to some confusion and challenges in the interpretation of the text and in translating it into practical terms. Significant practical challenges around data, The Moody’s Analytics IFRS 17 roadshow brings together experts from actuarial, accounting and technology departments of insurers to discuss requirements, best practices and opportunities of the new accounting reporting standard.
