Relevant IFRS themes: Anytime, anywhere

17 July 2019 | Business

A good understanding of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) is crucial to the financial reporting process of IFRS reporters.

Banks and Insurers in particular have to cope with specific and complex IFRS themes. PwC has developed a comprehensive IFRS e-learning programme tailored for banks and insurers in order to meet the banking and insurance industry’s need.

Our unique IFRS e-learning curriculum aims to create a solid IFRS understanding, focusing on insurer and banking specific topics. The programme is tailored to meet the needs of these industries and covers emerging topics.

As insurers and banks are currently busy with implementation of IFRS 9-Financial Instruments and preparing for IFRS 17-Insurance Contracts, our e-learnings are centered around the relevant fundamentals.

Why IFRS e-learnings for banks and insurers?

Banks and insurers have expressed a need to increase the knowledge of their global employees with respect to IFRS developments.

Together with our clients, we identified relevant topics and the preferred learning mechanism: e-learning. This will allow banks and insurers to update their (global) workforce on IFRS developments that are relevant to their industry, at relatively low costs. Anytime, anywhere.

IFRS e-learning modules may also be combined with classroom sessions in a blended learning model. Participants take the IFRS e-learning modules beforehand, allowing more time for covering practical issues during the classroom session.

Who is the target audience?

Our IFRS e-learnings are specifically designed for those in financial and actuarial functions within insurers and banks. These modules are also of interest to those working within reporting, financial reporting, controlling, IT, internal audit, risk, ALM /treasury, account management and tax.

What are the advantages of e-learning?

• Convenient and flexible access;

• Easy on the budget;

• Serves different learning styles (self-driven and self-paced);

• Measurable results and reporting;

• Digital record keeping and administration;

• Aligned to 21st-century business;

• Collaboration and community building;

• Immediate feedback and recognition; and

• Widespread connection and standardisation.
