Event Synopsis:

Join Knowledge Group Online CPE Insurance Accounting Webinar. The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) recently released its Accounting Standards Update (ASU) that revamped the financial reporting of insurance companies’ long-duration contracts like life insurance, disability income, long-term care, and annuities.
