The Financial Accounting Standards Board is due to propose changes to accounting rules for insurers that could cause increased earnings volatility and lower sales growth. Insurers would have to recognize premium revenue over time when insurance is being provided rather than when it is received, while the reporting of costs might be delayed as well. Every time a company released earnings, it may have to change its assumptions about its expected income and expenses.
