The East Asian Actuarial Conference (EAAC) is one of the largest actuarial events in Asia. The 17th EAAC was held in Singapore between 15-18 October. The EAAC member associations include Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Chinese Taipei and Thailand. The conference was first held in 1981 and has since been held in varying parts of Asia. This year's main theme was 'Redefining risk, creating value'.
This year's event attracted over 500 actuaries and industry professionals from the region and around the globe. The IFoA representative team was led by CEO Derek Cribb. The IFoA had a booth at the conference, providing information on the new Certified Actuarial Analyst qualification, volunteer opportunities, working parties and popular research papers. During the conference, Derek Cribb led a drinks reception on 16 October for IFoA members attending the EAAC.
