Overview

Moody’s Insurance Summit will once again gather leading insurance industry practitioners, investors and credit analysts to explore industry trends and challenges with a mix of high-profile speakers and interactive panel discussions.

As the environment surrounding insurance companies continues to change dramatically with ultra-low interest rates and an increase in natural catastrophe risks, insurers are asked to revise their traditional insurance operations in response to standardization of global regulations and new risks and make progress on numerous fronts simultaneously. Optimising financial performance, implementing a significant change to financial reporting, – and enhancing environmental and social practices – all at a time of great technological change.

Please join Moody's Insurance Summit in Tokyo, which brings together the know-how, research and knowledge of Moody's Investors Service and Moody's Analytics to provide unrivaled insight into the insurance industry.

IFRS 17: Communicating Performance with Consistency and Transparency

  • IFRS 17 provides a framework for companies to communicate performance in a consistent and transparent manner, building confidence amongst existing and potential investors
