Preliminary Views on Insurance Contracts—Discussion Paper

Now available on the FASB website is a pre-recorded webinar explaining the FASB’s recently issued Discussion Paper, Preliminary Views on Insurance Contracts. The webinar includes a slide presentation synchronized with audio and will be available through Friday, January 14, 2011.

In this 30-minute webinar that is moderated by FASB Assistant Technical Director Peter Proestakes, FASB members Marc Siegel and Russ Golden explain why the FASB issued the Discussion Paper and discuss how and why the FASB’s preliminary views on certain critical accounting issues differ from those of the International Accounting Standards Board in its Exposure Draft, Insurance Contracts.

The pre-recorded webinar is offered free of charge. Viewers should direct any questions to Jennifer Weiner (jmweiner@fasb.org) and Trent Handy (tlhandy@fasb.org).

CPE credit is not provided for this webinar.
