LONDON, Nov 14 (Reuters) - A global standard setting body has proposed a one-year delay to implementing its new accounting rule aimed at increasing visibility in how insurers earn money.
A spokeswoman for the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) said that a meeting of the IASB on Wednesday backed a 12-month delay to January 2022.
The industry had called for introduction of the rule to be delayed until 2023. There will be a public consultation on the proposed delay.
