Delegates will hear from leading experts in the industry to help keep them up to date on where the industry is going and the challenges that actuaries, and those who rely upon actuaries, will be facing in coming times. This is an important seminar for all actuaries, in particular practising certificate holders. It is aimed primarily at senior life assurance actuaries and their advisors. It will also be of interest to all those who work in, or advise on, the life assurance market in the UK and Europe. For further information, visit www.actuaries.org.uk/conf_flyer/cila20100901

Variable annuities seminar: bridging the divide
17 September,
Staple Inn,

This seminar will confront the issues and challenges associated with a volatile financial environment together with a moving regulatory landscape. The event will equip attendees to understand these issues better and move beyond the challenge to deliver meaningful client products and appropriately reward the companies that provide them.

GIRO conference and exhibition
12-15 October,
Celtic Manor,
The programme for the GIRO conference and exhibition 2010 is complete and should have landed on the desks of all actuaries with an interest in general insurance, as well as being available on the Profession’s website. The theme is ‘Actuarial impact – rising to the challenge’. Plenary sessions will cover areas such as pricing, professionalism and standards, risk management, reserving and Solvency II.

Keynote speaker Nigel Barlow is a leading authority on innovation, creativity and customer service. There will also be over 60 workshops on a range of topics. As GIRO regulars will know, it is not just about the technical actuarial content. It is an opportunity for general insurance actuaries to catch up and exchange ideas so, as usual, the committee have organised a variety of social events.
