Webinar: Revised IFRS 17 – Implications for Insurers and Actuaries

Tuesday 4 August 2020 09:00 - 10:00

On 25 June the International Accounting Standards Board published Amendments to IFRS 17, the Insurance Contracts global accounting standard effective 1 January 2023. The IFoA’s cross-practice Financial Reporting Group (FRG) is delighted to be joined by IASB board member Darrell Scott to host a webinar on Tuesday 4 August covering these developments. 

This is an important CPD event building on our free CPD programme from last year.  Due to the current circumstances we are not in a position to offer the event for free this year. Due to the importance of the subject and the current discussions taking place within organisations about IFRS 17, the IFoA  have reduced the non-member price to £25.00.

The session will address questions such as ‘What are the latest changes’ and ‘What does IFRS 17 mean for the insurance industry?’ with an opportunity for attendees to pose their own questions to the panel.  

Keynote speaker: Darrel Scott, IASB Board member

Darrel Scott became a member of the International Accounting Standards Board (Board) in October 2010, having previously been a member of the IFRS Interpretations Committee and a member of what is now called the IFRS Advisory Council. He was reappointed to the Board to serve a second term in 2015. 

Prior to joining the Board, Mr Scott was chief financial officer of FirstRand Banking Group, one of the largest financial institutions in South Africa. He was responsible for both financial reporting under IFRS Standards and regulatory reporting under the Basel II Accords.

He is chairman of the Board’s SME Implementation Group and the Board’s Emerging Economies Group.
