IFRS 17 Data Governance Whitepaper


IFRS 17 is the long-awaited new international standard for accounting for insurance contracts.

It marks the most significant change in insurance accounting in over 20 years.

IFRS 17 introduces a new way for measuring insurance liabilities and recognising insurance revenue. These calculation and disclosure requirements demand a new way of capturing, recording, storing, categorising and reporting data pertaining to insurance contracts.

Substantial Impact

IFRS 17 impact on the end to end reporting cycle is substantial. From sourcing data to publishing and disclosing results to the market.

This involves core systems, Business Intelligence, and reporting solutions and it will lead to a review of system architecture towards a more integrated approach.

On the organizational level, actuarial and finance teams will be required to collaborate more closely and focus on data quality and consistency, aligning system architectures and business processes.

IFRS 17: A Data Governance Challenge

While IFRS 17 poses a range of challenges for insurers, it also represents an opportunity to redesign a strategy for data governance based on this new standard. This whitepaper explores the impact of IFRS 17 on data acquisition, storage, analysis and reporting.

This IFRs 17 white paper focuses on the following aspects:

  • Data Governance and Strategy
  • The impact of IFRS 17 on data management: a process-wide perspective
  • A Data Governance work programme for IFRS 17
  • Technology solutions to meet the IFRS 17 challenges

The goal is not only to provide a thorough analysis of the impact of the new standard in each step of the reporting cycle from the perspective of different facets of data as a foundation for a an actionable Roadmap encompassing the fundamental building blocks of "people, process, technology", but to transcend mere compliance aspects and arrive at generating business value.
