IFRS17 Webinar – How Digital Transformation Impacts the Role of Finance and Actuarial

 

Digital transformation and technology innovation is driving huge change across the insurance industry. From customer experience, biometrics, AI, chatbots, machine learning, through to leveraging cloud computing. This combined with the need to deliver IFRS17 means the impact on finance and actuarial is significant.

Watch a recording of the Webinar above.

Actuaries will need to support and understand the transaction-based finance world and finance teams will need to interact with actuarial modelling output to validate results.

Join Legerity and a panel of experts, as we discuss how regulation and digital transformation are changing the finance and actuarial functions within insurance firms.

 

The agenda will cover:

– The future of finance in a digital world
– The changing role of the actuary
– Can IFRS17 help deliver digital transformation
– Should IFRS 17 be approached from a finance or an actuarial systems perspective
– How technology supports collaboration between finance and actuarial
