We are excited to host a webinar on IFRS17 with an expert panel who will offer insight and advice on how to face the hurdles thrown at insurers by this complex regulatory change. Our panel will be discussing designing, implementing and managing an IFRS17 programme; how to decide on your TOM, project management methodologies, software and teams as well as dealing with stakeholder management and company motivation in light of the deadline push-back and the current pandemic.
The aim is to share key lessons learnt in order to help others still early on or mid-way through implementation, as well as bring a variety of industry professionals together.
