IFRS 17

Mastering challenges
Seizing opportunities

Make your finance IT fit for the future now

For the first time, the international financial reporting standard IFRS 17 will internationally regulate the recognition, measurement and accounting of insurance contracts. IFRS 17 thus enables insurers to be compared worldwide.

Capital market-oriented insurers must implement the new standard for their consolidated financial statements by 2023 at the latest. This is why now is the right time to set up your IT landscape for the new reporting, data storage and processing requirements.

At the same time, you are investing in the future viability of your financial operations. Take the opportunity to rethink your entire financial area, successfully manage your financial transformation and sustainably increase your business results.

We support you along the way with competent consulting and comprehensive services around the SAP solution portfolio for Finance & Risk.
