The Actuarial Association of Uganda (TAAU) recently held a pensions seminar for young aspiring actuaries working in the pensions sector in Uganda.
The objective of the seminar was to provide a basic education on the fundamentals of types of social security systems, the design of private pension schemes, the role of regulations in pensions, financing of public and private schemes and to discuss the importance of professionalism in working with and handling pensions.
The seminar was a rare opportunity to learn from a qualified pensions actuary and was attended by 40 delegates from across the insurance and pensions industry in Uganda, and final year students of the BSc Actuarial Science degree at Makerere University.
The seminar was closed by Andrew Kasirye, the board chairman of the Uganda Retirement Benefits Regulatory Authority (URBRA).
TAAU hopes to transform the insurance and pensions industry by promoting the actuarial profession in Uganda.
