ASHK IFRS Seminar 2021
 
15 - 16 September 2021 Hong Kong
Stay tuned for more details!
Overview
The ASHK is pleased to organize the IFRS Seminar scheduled for 15-16 September 2021 in Hong Kong. This seminar is specially designed for actuaries who are responsible for financial reporting in compliance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) or who need to be familiar with IFRS reporting as part of their work.

As we all know, IFRS 17 is highly complex and affects almost every aspect of insurance business.  We will provide an overview of the impact of the changes with a goal to help actuaries and industry stakeholders understand how they will be affected and key considerations and decisions to be taken. It will also help entities plan more effectively by highlighting where new processes and systems or more guidance may be needed.

Over the course of 2 days, a diverse panel of industry experts will take you through the standard in the form of lectures and interactive workshops. Topics will cover the changes in the latest IFRS 17 standard (June 2020), accounting options, key implementation issues or challenges, emerging market practice and case studies on Hong Kong products.



**Important Note:
According to the current social distancing regulations, no food and beverage can be served at the event venue so lunch will NOT be provided for this event. Thank you for your attention and understanding!
