ditto is... discussing the Eastern opportunity of IFRS 17


Our retained client, Legerity have recently opened their brand-new office in Hong Kong, the heart of Asia-Pacific.

Legerity are transforming finance and risk functions, enabling firms to meet the increasing complexity and compliance challenges of IFRS 17. Globally, Insurers are having to consider how to standardise processes, bridging the gap between actuarial and finance functions across multiple, worldwide locations. So what does this mean from a regional perspective?

We caught up with Legerity’s Jeremy Wood, CEO and Founder, and Mark Miller, IFRS Global Lead to learn more about their Eastern opportunity with IFRS 17.

The discussion explored why this new global standard has taken them to Hong Kong specifically, how the standard is viewed in the Asia-Pacific region, what are the differences in that part of the world and identifying international themes that are reinforced there.
