This webinar will present the recently released International Actuarial Note on IFRS 17 Insurance Contracts, developed by the IAA's Insurance Accounting Committee.

Over the past 20 years, the IAA has given significant input to the development of the International Financial Reporting Standard 17, Insurance Contracts (IFRS 17) and has gained significant insight into the challenges and key approaches of reporting under IFRS 17 and the role of the actuary in that reporting process. IAN 100 serves to familiarize actuaries with approaches that might be taken and to demonstrate how the actuarial profession might approach the application of IFRS 17 to improve quality, credibility and public confidence in information disclosed and recognized in financial statements prepared in compliance with IFRS 17, thereby serving the public interest.

IAN 100 is based on the Standard issued in May 2017 and the amendments published in June 2020. It also reflects some of the discussions at the Transition Resource Group (TRG) meetings held in 2018 and 2019. This IAN will be reviewed periodically and may be revised in the future to reflect any future changes to the standard by International Accounting Standards Board (IASB).
