Actuarial consulting

The new standard for Insurance Contracts is an important driver of the way an insurer presents its balance sheet and income statement. At outset it is important to select the accounting methods that fit best with the company strategy. Also, the accounting and financial departments of the insurance entity should become acquainted and get comfortable with the actuarial techniques that form the basis of this new insurance accounting.

Important topics to consider are:

  • Choices available in the measurement approach
  • Controlling the way that the company presents its income statement and revenue
  • Avoiding accounting mismatches with the IFRS9 standard for financial instruments
  • Management of an implementation date later than for IFRS9
  • Managing the differences with local GAAP
  • Controlling the net accounting effect of reinsurance
