IFRS 17: Guidance for Risk Adjustments
IFRS 17 requires that risks inherent in the cash flows of the insurance contracts are considered in measurement, differentiating between financial risks and non-financial risks. While the financial risks are measured at their current (estimated) market value, non-financial risks are measured at “the compensation that the entity requires for bearing the uncertainty about the amount and timing of the cash flows that arises from non-financial risk”.
Identifying the uncertainties, for both amount and timing, factors influencing the uncertainties like random deviations or changes of risk over time and differentiating between financial and non-financial risk for quantifying the risk and identifying the entity-specific risk aversion for associating a value to the estimated quantity of risk demands a deep understanding of the concepts of IFRS 17.Organised by the EAA – European Actuarial Academy GmbH.
The web session is suited for actuaries and accountants with good knowledge of the measurement approaches of IFRS 17. The background knowledge is necessary since there will be no time to introduce those concepts.
