Global challenges for the actuarial profession
Staple Inn,
High Holborn,
5:30pm for 6pm start

Paul Thornton, the current president of the International Actuarial Association (IAA), will give a presentation describing the work done by the IAA in responding to recent global challenges, such as the global financial crisis and developments with international accounting standards.

He will outline the work being done with supranational organisations such as the International Association of Insurance Supervisors, International Accounting Standards Board and International Organisation of Pension Supervisors, and the relationships with the IMF, World Bank, OECD and other key bodies, as well as the activities of IAA Working Groups on mortality, micro-insurance and population issues.

The presentation will show how the day-to-day work of actuaries in the UK is more heavily influenced by the international agenda than many appreciate.


Call for papers
We are now looking for papers to be presented at our programme meetings in 2011. We particularly would like to include papers that will be of interest to younger members, and that are likely to stimulate a lively discussion.

We also encourage younger members of the profession to consider writing a paper and presenting their ideas to a friendly audience. Please contact programme@sias.org.uk for more information.
