A Look Back at 2018 – From Assessment to Implementation

The Insurance industry has started to realise the challenges and opportunities of IFRS 17 and we have seen firms complete Impact Assessments and consider their next step. Legerity has engaged with many firms over the last 12 months, progressing through our IFRS 17 workshops and ‘Proof of Concept’ programme, and in the first half of 2019 we will see firms move into the implementation phase.

IFRS 17 is a once in a generational opportunity to deliver significant business benefits and the recent extension to the deadlines makes this even more possible.

IFRS 17 Proof of Concept



Fundamental to the success of any IFRS 17 implementation is data management. However, identifying the data required for both actuarial and finance, plugging any gaps, and getting agreement across all stakeholders is a significant challenge.

On January 22nd we host the next in our series of webinars looking at different stages on the route to implementation.
