Who Should Participate

Actuaries from the Financial Reporting and Smaller Insurance Company Sections, as well as all anyone interested in or involved with year-end financial reporting work in the U.S. 


Once again, we have lined up three expert speakers for this popular annual webcast. Presenters will bring you up to speed on the latest considerations for this year-end’s financial reporting work.

Topics for this webcast include:

  • Cash flow testing and this year’s New York and California holiday letters;
  • The continued impact of low interest rates;
  • Results from the SOA report on Modern Deterministic Scenarios;
  • The new practice note from the Academy on Asset Adequacy Testing;
  • The new model law on Asset Adequacy Testing for LTC;
  • Implementing PBR for this year-end (including relevant changes to the Valuation Manual and AG 48); and
  • An update on current SOA research looking at the use of simplified methods for PBR and year-end work.

Attend this webcast to stay up to date with the latest changes to applicable regulations and other current issues affecting financial reporting work this year-end.
