IFRS 17 implementation

In Insurance

IFRS 17 is the biggest insurance accounting change in decades. Our skilled team understands both the business and technical issues around IFRS 17 and can work with you to achieve compliance that’s aligned with your finance transformation programs.

What EY can do for you

While IFRS 17 poses many significant challenges for insurers, it also represents an opportunity to modernize and upgrade technology and data capabilities in finance, risk and actuarial operations.
