IFRS 17 Implementation: Different Companies, Different Approaches

IFRS 17 Implementation: Different Companies, Different Approaches

Regulatory changes often represent significant challenges and efforts for the individual departments. IFRS 17, however, will not only affect one department, since it requires changes that involve almost every stakeholder, functional area, system, person and process.
