Part 2 - DAC
1.8 SOA/EA CPD, CAS CE Credits/Training Hours
Have you ever heard a lot of chatter about DAC and wanted to understand its mechanics in more detail? Are you currently in a role that requires GAAP accounting knowledge but don't have a good handle on DAC?
This webinar is the second in a series of webinars that explores the GAAP Accounting Framework for "beginners". This webinar is an overview of DAC as it pertains to Life and/or Annuity companies. Attendees will be able to feel conversant about DAC, it's purpose, it's calculation, and it's context in financial statements.
Specific topics covered include:
- Deferred Acquisition Cost Examples
- Calculations by product type and accounting classification
- Retrospective and Prospective Calculations (Everyone loves k-factors!)
- True up and Unlocking
- Recoverability and Loss Recognition Testing
- Shadow DAC
- Common drivers of DAC Volatility
Webinar attendees will walk away with some basic numerical examples of DAC amortization, true up/unlocking, loss recognition testing, etc. There will also be a short e-course available for purchase in addition to this webinar for any attendees that want to walk through the webinar topics in a very granular manner.
Who should attend?
- FSAs/ASAs/students with minimal experience in a GAAP context that are interested in learning more about DAC
- Accountants that would like to learn more about DAC
- Actuaries in non-GAAP countries seeking an understanding of GAAP to be more conversant with international colleagues and clients
