Why attend?

IFRS 17 continues to produce several challenges as firms gear up for final implementation. Thus far the timelines surrounding the new reporting standard have been uncertain and recently the industry was granted a one year extension. This deferral has allowed firms to gain extra time to further enhance their programs and plan for transition. However several unanswered questions remain and firms require further clarification in order to successfully trial dry runs and finalise planning. The IFRS 17 Forum will provide a platform from the industry’s leading professionals to discuss and debate the key opportunism and challenges surrounding the standard. Throughout the compact and concise on day gathering attendees will gain insight on various topics including timelines, transition & implementation, CSM, IT systems, impact on customers and much more.
