    The IFoA has co-sponsored this latest research by the PPI.  The research considers the current tax regime in the UK; whether the current regime works and whether there could be any alternatives to the current system.

    This event will be of interest to actuaries working in Pensions, both Defined Benefit and Defined Contribution.  Actuaries with an interest in Public Policy may also wish to contribute to the discussion of the research.

    Many of our members who volunteer to join our working parties, or undertake research on our behalf, ask for guidance on issues relating to competition law – when does it apply; what are the consequences of getting this wrong; what are the key questions should one ask oneself, etc. We aim to provide guidance on all of these issues in a practical way in this session. The session will also include a case study and a Q&A session, with questions from the floor.

    Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLPThis session will be delivered by an experienced competition law team from Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP, a global law firm with a long-standing track record of successfully supporting the world's leading national and multinational corporations, financial institutions and governments on ground-breaking and business-critical mandates. They will deliver a one and a half hour training session for our members. The session will be filmed and members who are unable to attend this event can access this training, free of charge, via the website from the end of August 2013.

    This event will count for 1 ½ hours of Professional CPD under the Business Skills category.

    SUBMIT A QUESTION:

    We invite you to submit a question in advance. Even if you are unable to attend the event please make use of this option. Questions should be sent to Ilona.turnbull@actuaries.org.uk by 2 August 2013 or you can also submit your question when you book your place.

    On 20 June 2013, the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) published a revised (second) Insurance Contracts Exposure Draft (ED) in response to the comments received on the 2010 ED.   The proposed standard will replace IFRS 4, which currently permits a wide variety of practices in accounting for insurance contracts across the globe. The proposals present a significant change from current practice in the UK and will affect both life and non-life insurers. The comments period ends on 25 October 2013.  

    Andrea Pryde, Insurance Contracts Project Leader at the IASB, will provide an overview of the ED with particular focus on the areas of re-exposure.  Members of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries’ Financial Reporting Group (FRG) will then provide initial views on the ED for discussion at the meeting.  

    Who should attend?

    Actuaries and non-actuaries (including accountants) who are interested in life and non-life insurance accounting developments.

    Speaker:  Guy Gumbrell, Client Director, Cass Executive Education

    The word “authentic” is being used more and more in connection with leadership behaviour in the world of business. It’s not difficult to see where the attraction with this word has come from. In large part, its popularity has been born from a sense of shock and betrayal at such scandals as LIBOR fixing, media phone hacking and parliamentary expenses which have brought to light a gap between what leaders of these institutions professed to be doing and what they were actually getting up to.

    But what does “authentic” mean and how does it manifest itself in the complex world of today’s corporate leadership? This talk will involve you in a debate about what makes authentic leadership and why it might be a good thing for every business, and every individual.

    Discussion points include:

    • Authentic leadership and emotional intelligence – theory and practice; illustrations from business practice
    • Trust and leadership – stakeholder expectations of leadership
    • Bringing the ‘you’ to work – Do you bring the real ‘you’ to work? Should you? If so, how much?

    About the speaker

    Guy is a Client Director of Cass Executive Education. Before joining Cass in March 2012, Guy had a similar role at Henley Business School for four years, working on leadership and coaching projects. He specializes in leadership development and the implementation of learning through individual coaching and action learning. Guy’s particular areas of interest include - the practicalities of being an authentic leader, organisational cultures that support learning and growth (and those that don’t).

    Guy’s background is in education and management development both in the corporate and consultancy environments. He began his management development career in George Wimpey before moving into consultancy where he built up experience of developing managers (both local and ex-patriate) in UK-based Japanese companies. He has worked with organisations from most sectors, including Aon, Bank of Scotland, PwC, Toyota Motor Manufacturing UK, Nokia, Financial Services Authority, Olympus Europe and KPMG.

    Guy has a Masters in EU Law from the University of Leicester, the Henley Certificate in Coaching and is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development.

    Multivariate data abound in many applications including insurance, risk management, finance, biology, health and environmental sciences. Copulas are a useful way to model multivariate data as they account for the dependence structure and provide a flexible representation of the multivariate distribution. They allow for flexible dependence modelling, different from assuming simple linear correlation structures and normality, which makes them particularly well suited to many applications in finance, insurance and medicine, among others.

    Course objectives

    This two-day short course:

    • Introduces and develops the theoretical aspects of dependence modeling with copulas both for continuous and discrete multivariate data.
    • Presents real-data applications of multivariate copulas describing features of existing copula software.
    • Presents the latest developments both in theory and practice.

    Target audience

    The course is intended for actuarial practitioners, risk professionals, consultants and academics.

    You can now download the paper by the members of the Extreme events working party. The Extreme Events working party will present an afternoon workshop followed by a formal sessional meeting.  In order to attend both parts of the event you need to make two bookings, please follow the links below:

    Workshop

    Please book now for the workshop

    Please download the following excel spreadsheets developed by the working party and pre-load to your laotop before the workshop (Please note: you are not required to review the spreadsheets before the workshop):

    13:30 - 15:00 Session I: Errors in proxy models 

    Excel spreadsheet #1

    Excel spreadsheet #2

    Section 5 of the paper gives numerical examples of the use of proxy models, that is, approximate formulas for assets and liabilities which are quicker and easier to calculate than full models. This workshop shows in detail how these examples were constructed, based on the Excel spreadsheets the working party has developed, which will be distributed electronically to delegates.

    Delegates explore:

    - How to construct proxy models of bonds, annuities, term assurance and investment guarantees, fitted to stress tests

    - Linear fits, separable quadratic, cross terms and higher order terms

    - Fit measures: R-squared, Akaike and Bayes information, testing parameter significance with F-tests

    - Monte Carlo simulation of exact and approximate loss functions in percentile calculations

    - Comparing mean squared error to worst case error

    - Constructing minimax fits and identifying Achilles nodes where the fit is especially challenging.

    - How the fit improves as the numbers of fitting points and basis functions increase.

    - Discussions of how these may relate to other products ]

     

    15:00 -15:10  Break

    15:10 - 16:30 Session II: Errors in model choice and parameter estimates

    Excel spreadsheet #3 (Macros required)

    Section 4 of the paper shows ways of allowing for uncertainty in models and parameters. The second half of the workshop shows applications of these tools using the spreadsheets which the working party developed. The presentation explores:

    - Frequentist definitions of interval size, bias and efficiency

    - Algorithms for interval construction using Monte Carlo construction

    - Computation of percentile estimates based on method of moments, probability weighted moments and maximum likelihood

    - Understanding why different methods produce different answers and understanding the attributes of data sets for which the differences are largest.

    - Metropolis Hastings algorithms for calculating Bayesian posterior distributions

    - Calculating capital charges for parameter and model risk

    - Implications for statistical quality standards and model validation

    - Communication of statistical test results

     Sessional Meeting

    Please book now for the sessional meeting

    The revised paper will be available soon.

    16:30 - 17:00 Meet the Authors

    17:00 - 17:30 Registration

    17:30 - 19:00 Sessional meeting

     

    Please note, that as a result of member feedback, we will be trialling a new ‘enhanced networking initiative’ at this sessional research meeting.

    The purpose of this initiative is to improve integration and networking among members, with particular focus on making those who are newly qualified or new to events, feel encouraged to approach more experienced members and become integrated into the actuarial community.

    At each meeting, members who have particular experience in the topic area or those who are happy to be approached by new members and share their experience will be asked to wear a yellow ribbon on their name badge.

    We would invite all those members who are happy to wear a yellow ribbon on their name badge to signal that they encourage any member to approach them and ask questions about the sessional meeting, chat or even just to introduce themselves to get in touch with Event Management.

    Risk management has always been core to what we do. However, in today’s environment of economic and financial uncertainty, new regulation and emerging lessons from the financial crisis, risk management has been elevated to a new level of importance and urgency as the financial services industry looks at risk and capital in new ways. New responsibilities have emerged for actuaries, risk managers, senior management, board members and others.

    The “ERM: Insights for Insurers” conference will provide attendees with insights into recent developments in risk management and explore their relevance to insurers. Our speakers– all risk management experts - will explore risk management topics in detail, taking the current economic and supervisory environment into account.

    Can long term investment performance be optimised not only for financial rewards but also for ESG rewards? Why are financial and ESG rewards aligned for owners with large diversified portfolios? Fiona Reynolds, Managing Director, UNPRI, will set the scene. Lewis Grant will talk about how Hermes Fund Managers put principles of responsible ownership into practice, aiming to achieve superior long term performance.

    Who should attend?

    This event will be of interest to:

    • All actuaries interested in maximising long term financial returns on diversified investment portfolios
    • Actuaries interested in the impact of climate disruption on insurers and reinsurers
    • Members of the Resource and Environment Member Interest Group 
    • Sceptics of climate disruption, who believe that risks that might arguably be remote should be addressed if the impact might be globally catastrophic for their grandchildren and their grandchildren’s grandchildren.
