Implementation of the new accounting standards (CECL, IFRS 9, IFRS 17, LDTI) poses a significant challenge for Insurers. The standards are quite different but they all have broad financial, organizational and operational impact. Collectively and Individually, the standards drive need for additional data, workflow, scenarios, calculations, disclosures, and reporting. Solution design choices become critical as Insurer’s look to build systems that provide the flexibility to quickly test impact of the standards on financials and better understand the drivers of change.
This webinar focuses on what insurers can expect when implementing the CECL, IFRS 9, IFRS 17, and LDTI accounting standards. The presenters will touch upon several topics:
The new standards and their possible implications
The business-related impacts on insurers
Implementation challenges, including:
- Data issues, including availability, granularity, and allocation/aggregation
- Methodology options for assets (CECL, IFRS 9) and liabilities (IFRS 17, LDTI)
- Attributing changes and identifying where they occur from period to period
- Reporting and disclosure requirements
Workflow and Automation aspects

In this paper, we set out to triangulate on a reasonable range of reserves for the Current Expected Credit Loss (CECL). This methodology can be highly useful in times of uncertainty.
Nobody expected the end of the economic cycle to happen so suddenly, but adjustments will be required given the materiality of the events unfolding. How can you quickly adjust for an ever-evolving scenario where today’s assumptions may not hold tomorrow.
The traditional loss-minimizing approach to managing corporate trade credit can keep write-offs low but may be overly conservative.
The COVID-19 pandemic has pushed many commercial entities to increase their borrowing and drawdown on their lines of credit. We use bank call report data to analyze the potential impact to capital levels at US financial institutions.
Join our experts as they review the business challenges that CECL presents beyond the reporting date numbers.
During the last financial crisis, some of the better-performing commercial credits were originated under extremely conservative origination policies This paper explores risk rating options and advises what you can do now to enhance your origination process.
Traditionally, corporate trade credit limits have been set based on customer size, an internal or external credit score, and a qualitative sense of risk appetite. These limits have been effective in minimizing write-offs, principally because they are conservative.
Recent CECL impact disclosures point directly to credit cards as the largest driver of the allowance. We can confirm those recent disclosures by looking at the consumer default volumes chart in Figure 1,which clearly point to the credit card segment as being one of the largest contributors of loss today.
