    A sessional event delivered by the Model Risk Working Party.

    Chair: Andrew Hitchcox, Chair of the Risk Management Board

    Speakers: Nirav Morjaria, HSBC, Andreas Tsanakas, Cass Business School and Andrew Smith, Deloitte

    Registration: 17.00 - 17.30

    Programme: 17.30 - 19.00

    With the increasing use of complex quantitative models in applications throughout the financial world, model risk has become a major concern.  Such risk is generated by the potential inaccuracy and inappropriate use of models in business applications, which can lead to substantial financial losses and reputational damage.  In this paper we deal with the management and measurement of model risk.

    • First, a model risk framework is developed, adapting concepts such as risk appetite, monitoring, and mitigation to the particular case of model risk.  The usefulness of such a framework for preventing losses associated with model risk is demonstrated through case studies. 
    • Second, we investigate the ways in which different ways of using and perceiving models within an organisation both lead to different model risks. We identify four distinct model cultures and argue that in conditions of deep model uncertainty, each of those cultures makes a valuable contribution to model risk governance. Thus the space of legitimate challenges to models is expanded, such that, in addition to a technical critique, operational and commercial concerns are also addressed. 
    • Third, we discuss through the examples of proxy modelling, longevity risk and investment advice, common methods and challenges for quantifying model risk.  Difficulties arise in mapping model errors to actual financial impact. In the case of irreducible model uncertainty, it is necessary to employ a variety of measurement approaches, based on statistical inference, fitting multiple models, and stress and scenario analysis.

    For over a decade, UK private sector companies have slowly been closing their defined benefit pension schemes. The original ‘Fair Deal’ policy, first introduced in 1999, was designed to protect the pensions of staff transferred out of the public sector on a compulsory transfer, and to ensure that they would receive access to an occupational pension scheme broadly comparable to the public service pension scheme they were leaving.

    In October 2013, a revised ‘New Fair Deal’ policy was published, which allowed employees who have transferred from the public sector to a non-public sector employer to continue to access their previous public sector pension scheme. Delegates attending this event will be provided with a brief history of Fair Deal and an up to date working knowledge of this growing area of DB pensions actuarial work. With representatives from the Treasury and GAD, together with an experienced consulting actuary, this seminar will provide a morning of interesting discussions and updates.

    Networking reception: 19.30 - 20.00

    The 6th April 2015 sees the launch of much anticipated change in the UK pensions industry. With tens of thousands of people expected to take advantage of the new pensions freedoms, the key risks for the pensions industry have centred around our ability to deliver and meet the needs of pension scheme members, and to ensure members receive proper education before making a choice. Investment education remains core to the debate, as the new world of DC pensions puts the onus on the individual to take on and understand this risk.

    Speakers are:

    Chair - Henry Tapper, Director of First Actuarial 

    Jamie Jenkins, Head of Pensions Strategy, Standard Life

    Tim Banks, Managing Director, Pension Strategies Group, Alliance Bernstein

    John Quinlivan, Director, Sales Strategy & Retention, Aegon

    Alan Higham, Retirement Director, Fidelity

    We are delighted to have these key figures from the pension provider market join us for our panel debate, and to share their experience of how the change has been for them. If you have any specific questions that you would like to pose to the panel please email danielle.levy@actuaries.org.uk in advance. Questions will also be taken on the evening.

    A netowrking drinks reception will take place after the discussion.

    Thank you to First Actuarial for sponsoring the event and networking reception.

    This session is suitable for actuaries working in any area (i.e. it is not specifically aimed at Life, GI or any other technical discipline).

     

    Come along prepared to take part and say what you think!

     

    Why is professional skills training important?

     

    What is whistleblowing?  What are your professional responsibilities when something “does not smell right”?  Where should you go for advice and support?

     

    What sorts of situations can arise in practice?  We will watch and discuss some of the recently developed video case studies. Come and prepare to be challenged – these everyday situations may have a sting in the tail.

    This session will qualify for two hours of Professional Skills CPD, as required by some members under the IFoA’s CPD Scheme 2014/2015.

     

    If you book a place and then find yourself unable to attend a professional skills event, please inform the events team to avoid preventing others who wish to attend being able to do so.  These events often have a waiting list.

    This session is suitable for actuaries working in any area (i.e. it is not specifically aimed at Life, GI or any other technical discipline).

     

    Come along prepared to take part and say what you think!

     

    Why is professional skills training important?

     

    What is whistleblowing?  What are your professional responsibilities when something “does not smell right”?  Where should you go for advice and support?

     

    What sorts of situations can arise in practice?  We will watch and discuss some of the recently developed video case studies. Come and prepare to be challenged – these everyday situations may have a sting in the tail.

    This session will qualify for two hours of Professional Skills CPD, as required by some members under the IFoA’s CPD Scheme 2014/2015.

     

    If you book a place and then find yourself unable to attend a professional skills event, please inform the events team to avoid preventing others who wish to attend being able to do so.  These events often have a waiting list.

    Calling on all general insurance actuaries and other related professionals who have an interest in issues currently affecting the market! The IFoA proudly presents 'CIGI 2015' - a one day seminar aimed at providing education, entertainment and a forum for debate. This year we are privileged to be joined by a variety of speakers who will offer their insight and knowledge on a whole host of topics, including:

    • Aviation insurance market
    • Trends in Cargo underwriting
    • Underwriting performance at Lloyd's
    • M&A activity
    • The Actuarial Function
    • The role of the appointed Actuary

    The day will conclude with drinks and canapés allowing our delegates to discuss themes from the event and network with fellow professionals.

    Who should attend?

    This packed programme is broad in nature and requires an intermediate level of understanding so will be of most value to those with some experience in the industry. Although primarily aimed at actuaries, the seminar may also be of value to others who have an interest in general insurance.

    If the event is not of relevance to your role, please do bring it to the attention of other professionals in your organisation who could benefit from attending.
