Session 1: Experience obtained from the implementation of IFRS 17, Insurance Contracts
IFRS 17 establishes principles for the recognition, measurement, presentation, and disclosure of insurance contracts that are within the scope of that standard, which aims to ensure that an entity provides relevant information that fairly represents those contracts. This information constitutes a basis for users of financial statements to evaluate the effect that insurance contracts have on the entity's financial position, financial performance, and cash flows. In this regard, this panel will discuss the experience gained by those who have made the most progress in implementing this standard

Session 2: Regulation of Insurers´ Investments and Solvency
The objective of investment regulation is to minimize the risks to which investments are subject so that the institutions always have sufficient resources to meet their obligations to policyholders. The level of management measures makes it possible to reduce regulatory restrictions. However, each country must consider its characteristics to adopt an investment regulation scheme. This session will deal with the new regulations of Insurers´ Investments and Solvency, which exist or should exist in the current context, given the different risks assumed by the entities

Session 3: Climate Risk (Session A2ii)
Insurance supervisors have good reasons to take effective measures to promote resilience to climate risks and natural disasters, particularly among the poor and other generally excluded segments. These arise both from the need to fulfill their mandates and to act as stakeholders in achieving broader objectives, for example, those related to national disaster risk management policies and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This session aims to contribute to the topic by sharing ideas and stimulating discussions on what the roles of overseers may be in this context
