IFRS Insurance Newsletter - Issue 26
Along with this edition of IFRS Insurance Newsletter, we provide a special summary bulletin highlighting the implications for Canadian insurers of key decisions by the IASB and the FASB on the joint insurance contracts project through the end of May. The May meetings resulted in important decisions on dealing with volatility, confirmed the basic structure of the new model, and seemed to clear the way for the completion of this IFRS project - even if it now seems the US will go its own way. .
