    Over the past year, we have been developing a proposed new Certified Actuarial Analyst membership category and qualification for the profession (please note this is a working title). This is aimed primarily at those working with actuaries in support roles who could benefit from some technical actuarial knowledge, but who do not require the full skill set associated with being an actuary. The proposal would help to professionalise support roles by bringing those undertaking such roles within our regulatory framework. It is part of the Education strand of the IFoA’s strategy.

    We are currently conducting an information sharing exercise and invite you to attend a session, hosted by our Chief Executive and Director of Education, to find out more about this proposal.  After a presentation about the proposed membership category and qualification, attendees will be invited to ask questions and contribute to the discussion.

    For those who are unable to attend one of these sessions there is also a detailed outline of the proposal and a survey to allow members to share their views

    Why attend?

    Why is it that when one person walks into a room they have an immediate impact? They are listened to, they engage people and they are remembered, whereas you don’t even notice someone else enter or leave?

    In this interactive session you will learn to be the first person by developing your personal presence and impact in any situation from the board room to the coffee machine and much more.

    This Masterclass will cover

    • Congruent messages – how to deliver a message that gets attention and sticks
    • Eye contact and how to use it to create presence and impact
    • The environment – how to control it to make sure you get the most from every meeting.

    Who should attend?

    This Masterclass will be useful to anyone who wants to develop their personal presence and learn to build stronger relationships. The skills we will develop on the day are universally applicable and will help you to be more successful in anything you undertake, getting promoted, winning new business/contracts or your personal life.

    Why attend this event?

    This event takes place shortly after the close of the latest EIOPA consultation on proposed guidelines for preparing for Solvency II. This will be an opportunity to hear the latest thinking on ORSA from various perspectives, including the interpretation of the latest EIOPA guidelines, and intended approach both during the preparatory phase and beyond.

    You will be able to benchmark your existing progress on ORSA against the industry as well as your intended reaction to the latest guidance, comparing your progress towards Solvency II compliance as well as the scale of developments in terms of realising the potential value to be gained from investing in ERM.

    Who should attend?

    This session will be relevant to both life and general insurers.  It has a practical focus relevant to risk management professionals with responsibility for developing the ORSA and those in key operational areas such as strategy, capital management, ALM and business planning who will be expected to contribute and use the ORSA for improved decision making.

    The ARC Centre of Excellence in Population Ageing Research (CEPAR) is delighted to announce its inaugural international conference, to take place at the University of New South Wales, Sydney, on July 2 and 3 2013.

    Population ageing is a global phenomenon. While individual nations are at different stages in demographic transition, the trend for almost all is clear. The economic and social impact of demographic change is generating increasing research and policy attention. This conference will bring together leading academics, senior policymakers and practitioners to share new research and industry and policy perspectives on the dynamics of the ageing demographic. Fiscal, labour force, family, health, and financial questions will be discussed.

    Effective analysis of the implications of population ageing requires expertise drawn from multiple disciplines. We are seeking submissions from all relevant fields, including economics, actuarial science, demography, epidemiology, finance, psychology, risk management and sociology. The deadline for submission of abstracts in Friday 15 February 2013.

    Further details about the conference including topics and keynote speakers together with instructions for submitting abstracts and registering can be found at http://www.cepar.edu.au/events/cepar-conference-2013.aspx

Examples include:

    • Current European environment

    • Quantification of policyholder behavior

    Derivatives: a practical guide for users by Simon Richards and Graeme McAusland

    The trustee perspective by Carol Perry 

    Pension Scheme Investing, the role of derivatives by Gwion Moore 

    Why attend?

    Derivatives are becoming an increasingly important part of investment strategy for pension schemes and insurers. Therefore, actuaries working in these areas, both within and outside a formal investment advisory role, are required to have a deepening understanding of both the theoretical uses of these instruments and the practical implications of implementing strategies included in them.

    This event will provide an update on some of the most common uses of derivatives in pension scheme and insurance company asset strategy. It will also highlight some of the practical issues to be aware of when dealing with derivatives and when to call in the specialists!

    Who should attend?

    This session is a must for any actuary needing to consider assets as well as liabilities in their work. A basic knowledge of investment is assumed, however this session is intended for actuaries working outside an investment only capacity, as well as investment consultants.

    The session will cover pensions and insurance as examples however, as the focus is on practical investment issues, actuaries from other areas should also find the content relevant.
