Preparing your Board of Directors for IFRS17

Webinar description:

With the effective date for implementation of IFRS17 approaching, company executives should be preparing their boards for this transition:

  • What new metrics are being introduced under IFRS17? How do these differ from those prepared under IFRS4?
  • How do you present differences in a way that allows the board to make decisions?
  • How do IFRS17 metrics link to the Group’s strategic objectives?
  • Do the IFRS17 metrics answer the questions your board are trying to answer?
  • How do financial IFRS17 metrics cascade through the organization so that everyone is pulling in the same direction?

Mindful of the approaching changes, we at KPMG Malta can use our Enterprise Performance Management Framework to help smoothen the transition by relating IFRS4 metrics to IFRS17 metrics, as well as aligning new treatments to company strategies and aligning non-financial metrics at the operational level. With select digital toolsets, elements of the preparation of board packs can also be automated, driving efficiencies within the business.
