The Global Financial Markets Intelligence (GFMI) Conference “The 3rd Edition Practical Implementation of Operational Changes for IFRS 17” took place in Singapore on October 24-25, 2018.
This conference guided delegates through the early practical challenges of implementing the IFRS 17 standards. See how insurance companies are conducting gap analysis and preparing for changes to systems and data, and learn how they will be managing the resources required.
Delegates also had the chance to compare interpretations of the standard, attempting to reach clarification and consensus on key terms and definitions across the industry. Extended, practical case study sessions saw delegates complete and compare hands on exercises to develop their understanding of the calculation, and leave the event with a clear road map for the next steps in implementation.
