IFRS 17: One size does not fit all. Be ready for 1 January 2023

September 3, 2021


With just over 1 year to go to the IFRS 17 Go Live date of 1 January 2023, insurers are under pressure to implement the changes required by the Standard.
We will talk through a high level end-to-end implementation journey; highlighting the key areas of the business being impacted by IFRS 17; and the value of a gap analysis project (and key outcomes).

We will show a sample project and resource plan, showcasing how some insurers are managing and delivering upon the change requirements; and how it could differ between life and non life insurance products.

We will outline, by way of examples:

Technical Challenges
Data & Systems Challenges
Operational Impacts
Upskilling and Educational Plans
