    Whenever you look at historic data, trends seem obvious to the eye. Yet, we generally assume a random walk hypothesis ignoring trends when creating models. Is it possible to incorporate the intuitively obvious presence of trends within our models in an objective way?

    Yes, we can. The basic idea is to assume that markets have “regimes”; within a regime we assume a random walk with a constant trend and volatility; however with the regime changes, the parameters for trend and volatility are reset. The difficulty is how to determine objectively where the regimes change historically in order to calibrate a regime-changing model.

    As it turns out, there is a well-developed methodology for determining regimes in historic data: change points. This tool/methodology calculates the best-fit times of regime change, the so-called “change points”.

    This talk introduces change points in the context of incorporating trends into a financial model. However, change points are useful in a wider context and may be a valuable addition to the actuarial arsenal of tools.

    Speaker: Matt Modisett

    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. The IFoA set up the Model Risk Working Party to look into this area further. the Working Party recently presented their paper on the management and measurement of model risk to the IFoA.

    In this seminar Louise and Andreas will draw out some of the key ideas for the management of model risk and in particular demonstrate the applications of these by looking at case studies.

    Louise and Andreas will also focus on the ways in which different manners of using and perceiving models within an organisation lead to different model risks. They 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.

    Speakers:  Louise Witts and Andreas Tsanakas, on behalf of the Model Risk Working Party

    Data driven leadership and creating change using the numbers. 

    At the Life Conference 2014 the President of the IFoA called for actuaries as leaders to stand up be counted and to use their knowledge and skills to lead businesses into the future.

    This workshop is designed with exactly that in mind; working to develop your leadership skills. Being a leader is essential not only within your own business but also with your clients. You need to inspire trust, develop strong relationships and give clear leadership in these challenging times.

    The pace of change within our industry, within our clients, within the world in general is not going to slow down, if anything it is going to get faster and faster and in these changing times strong leadership skills are essential.

    In this interactive workshop Alan Donegan will give you the 7 keys to leadership, help you develop your own unique leadership style and show you how to lead when you don’t have authoritarian control.

    This masterclass has received the following excellent feedback from actuaries:

    "Very helpful tips for improving leadership skills"
    "Refreshing.  Possibly the best session I attended"
    "Most inspiring talk of the conference"
    "Great session with just the right mix of listening and application"

    The 7th SAS General Insurance Conference will be held in Singapore.

    Pushing the Boundaries

    As competition intensifies for General Insurance companies throughout the region, there is a need to break free of the current constraints and so ‘push the boundaries’. Boundaries come in many forms such as data, models, customers, distribution, competition and regulations. A recognition and understanding of all of these issues will be vital for the successful business of the future. These areas, and more, will be covered at this year’s conference in Singapore.

    The conference is open to all general insurance professionals. There is a good mix of technical and non-technical papers so anyone with an interest in General Insurance issues in the region will benefit from attending.

    There have been a number of papers produced discussing how to model longevity risk but it has been a number of years since a paper has specifically been produced to consider the fundamental nature of longevity risk.

    The IAA breakdown of longevity risk (Trend, Level, Catastrophe and Volatility) is still perceived to be the standard definition used despite many practitioners considering them insufficient as a foundation for modelling longevity risk.

    Whilst they continue to provide a common language for professionals to discuss longevity risk it is time for a revised conceptual framework for longevity risk which can provide a stronger foundation to take into account how different types of provider are exposed to longevity risk and the differences in their approach to longevity risk management. Sacha Dhamani’s paper and presentation is intended to trigger a debate in this area by proposing such a framework.

    Refreshments will be served from 17:30 and the lecture will start promptly at 18:00. There is no need to register in advance for this meeting and non-members are welcome. There will also be live tweeting available via #SIASJun15 during the talk – please do get involved with any comments and questions for the speakers.

    This seminar will provide an introduction to the new requirements in relation to Work Review under APS X2 and help guide you through what those might mean for you in practice.

    You will hear from those who developed the new requirements and have the opportunity to ask any questions that you may have. There will also be an interactive element to the session with attendees working through some case studies.

    Please note that this seminar will have a particular focus on the life insurance practice area and that the case study will deal with a life related scenario. However, those from other practice areas are welcome to attend and we will provide alternative case studies for those other attendees to look at.

    Please note that this session may be filmed.
