Paris conference to focus on insurance gender directive

The actuarial association of the CNAM in Paris is to host a one-day conference on 31 May to discuss the issues surrounding the forthcoming insurance gender directive.


The conference will highlight the opportunity to use more sophisticated data-mining in the insurance industry, especially for pricing, risk management and marketing studies.

Insurance companies will have to change their pricing models, IT systems and underwriting policies as they can no longer differentiate premiums by gender from 21 December 2012.

Data-mining experts, regulator spokesmen and insurance specialists will provide their analysis and present some tools and models that actuaries may use to adapt their process for general insurance, life and health insurance and pensions.

Further information on the conference may be found at http://genderdirective.actuariacnam.net.
