As we reflect on the third quarter of 2023, the journey towards full compliance with the International Financial Reporting Standard 17 (IFRS 17) in the GCC has reached a crucial juncture. In this blog, we examine the dynamics of the GCC insurance landscape, shedding light on the impacts of IFRS 17 adoption, and uncovering key trends prevalent in the region.
Aimed at enhancing the welfare of workers in the private sector and free zones, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has unveiled a new end-of-service benefits scheme. This innovative system includes the establishment of savings and investment funds, which will be closely monitored by the UAE Securities and Commodities Authority in collaboration with the Ministry of Human Resources.
As we find ourselves at the halfway mark of 2023, the GCC insurance landscape continues its journey toward full compliance with the International Financial Reporting Standard 17 (IFRS 17). Based on the performance of 78 listed insurers, the latest findings paint a picture of both progress and challenges in this evolving regulatory landscape.
Most GCC insurers have successfully adopted IFRS 17 with the transition having a negligible impact on the overall equity in the industry, although there are variations at an entity level. However, key challenges remain, with solvency deficits emerging as a prominent concern, leading to credit rating downgrades and the need for remedial plans.
