NEWS | For Immediate Release
LONDON, April 1, 2021 – Moody’s Analytics today announced that Crédito Agrícola Vida (CA Vida), the life insurance arm of Portuguese financial group Crédito Agrícola, will use the RiskIntegrity™ for IFRS 17 solution to address the new IFRS 17 accounting standard.
CA Vida selected Moody's Analytics for our combined actuarial and financial reporting capabilities, the flexibility of our software-as-a-service deployment model, and our experience advising firms implementing new standards.
“There are many considerations when selecting a software vendor to address a new regulatory or reporting regime. Moody's Analytics delivers the capabilities, expertise, and experience we will need at each step of our IFRS 17 project,” said António Castanho, Chief Executive Officer at CA Vida.
IFRS 17 brings fundamental changes across insurers’ organizations. Meeting the new reporting deadline means implementing systems through which different teams can easily access all of the data required for their IFRS 17 calculations and reporting requirements. The RiskIntegrity for IFRS 17 solution comes with the capabilities required for an efficient implementation of the standard. It integrates seamlessly with an insurer’s existing infrastructure—connecting data, models, systems, and processes between actuarial and finance functions—and supports the needs of actuaries, finance, and IT professionals.
“We continue to see demand from insurers across Europe for our RiskIntegrity for IFRS 17 solution, which reflects the depth and the breadth of our IFRS 17 offering,” said Christophe Burckbuchler, Managing Director at Moody’s Analytics. “We are pleased that CA Vida recognized our history helping insurance companies manage their risk, actuarial, and reporting needs, and we look forward to helping the firm prepare for the new standard.”
