In May 2017, IASB issued the new Insurance standard, IFRS 17 Insurance Contracts, with effective date of 01 January 2021. The new insurance standard will harmonise the method of measurement, presentation and disclosure thereby bringing consistency and comparability across the global insurance industry. Further, it will make the business model more visible to the users of the financial statements. IFRS 17 is bringing a change of the magnitude that implementation of Solvency II brought in Europe.
