IFRS 17 embraces a marketing value accounting concept under which insurance contract liabilities are constantly updated to reflect environments at the reporting date. It also has a deferral accounting aspect. These features are anticipated to replace the roles that embedded value (EV) disclosure has been taking.

This article compares the valuation approaches between IFRS 17 and EV and infers a potential future of EV disclosure.
