In 2017, the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) introduced IFRS 17, presenting a major change for the insurance industry, which could potentially have a more dramatic impact that Solvency II. Though implementation is not required until 2021, it is important for the industry to get to grips with that the new standards will require and begin considering their implementation strategies.
