A new world for insurance 

The IASB and FASB issued their targeted re-exposure drafts on insurance contracts in June, marking a major step forward towards implementing a common insurance reporting framework across much of the world.

The proposals apply to all insurance contracts, including certain financial guarantees, rather than insurance entities, and to investment contracts with a discretionary participation feature (DPF) issued by insurance companies.


Comments are due to the IASB and FASB by 25 October 2013.
