    The IFoA are delighted to welcome Lord Robert Winston as this year’s Spring Lecture speaker, presenting on:

    Genes, Genomics, Genetics: Human or Hubris?

    In this lecture Professor Winston examines what led to and preceded the sequencing of the human genome - an achievement which was described by one distinguished scientist as "a development more important than the invention of the wheel".  But what has happened since?  We already live in a time when humans live longer than at any point in previous history, and we are mostly far more healthy than ever before.  The excitement with which the sequencing was greeted resulted in many respected authorities arguing that this advance will help us further by predicting ill-health, revolutionising the understanding of human diseases and increase the development of far more effective therapeutic strategies.  Personalised medicine is now becoming a buzzword in our own National Health Service.  Against this background is the spiralling cost of healthcare in most advanced countries which may be accentuated by ageing populations, populations who are more prone to such conditions as cancer, heart disease, diabetes and deterioration of brain function.

    To what extent will advanced technology with the focus on genomic medicine be relevant in an uncertain future and are we missing the need for much greater concentration on simpler technologies to improve public health?

    The quantification and use of the liquidity premium in Life Assurance business is a topic that has significant implications not only for life insurers but also for wider society, with a material impact on pensioner incomes and potentially on investment markets.Consideration of the liquidity premium was of sufficient importance for disagreements over the approach to delay the implementation of Solvency 2 in the European Union. 

    A great deal of research has been undertaken in recent years to try to support derivation of the liquidity premium from asset prices.This meeting will consider this research, assess how the liquidity premium should then be applied to life assurance liabilities and then consider why none of these theoretical approaches were, in the end, adopted by Solvency 2.Finally the meeting will discuss the implications of this decision and where the debate on the liquidity premium might go from here.

    There will be no paper avaiable to download in advance of this event.

    Why attend?

    It is important for actuaries to remain on top of issues, especially in such a changing environment. The CIGI seminar provides a forum for general insurance actuaries to be aware and discuss a wide variety of issues. These include:

    • Lloyd’s issues
    • PPOs
    • Implications of the evolving digital world on insurance
    • Regulatory updates on Solvency II
    • Future developments for both actuarial technical and non-technical skills
    • Update on UK Flood and how these have affected companies pricing
    • Updates from several working parties including technical pricing and GIROC

    The programme and the format of this event have been designed to inform but also encourage discussions and thoughts, through a number of plenary and break out sessions.

    We have selected a range of experienced speakers from different backgrounds to bring a different perspective to the issues covered but also to encourage a wide debate. This seminar also provides a great opportunity to network with other general insurance actuaries.

    Who should attend?

    This packed programme covers a wide range of topics and therefore will be of value to all qualified and nearly qualified actuaries, working on general insurance matters in the UK and in Ireland.

    Why attend?

    The purpose of this workshop is to cover the major areas of UK life insurer taxation.  Topics will be covered interactively, through a mixture of presentations and case studies, including:

    • ‘I-E’ Taxation
    • Shareholder tax
    • Tax modelling and Planning
    • Current life insurance tax developments, including ICA+/Solvency II.

    Who should attend?

    This workshop is aimed at actuaries and other insurance professionals who are involved in life insurance financial reporting and are exposed to the impact of tax on financial results in both the modelling arena and from a business planning perspective.  The workshop will also be of interest to senior management of life insurers who have responsibility for reviewing tax results in particular, as traditional actuarial tax modelling techniques commonly used are often significantly different to the actual tax calculation.  Please note limited spaces are available for this workshop.

    - How will imminent or emerging regulation (Solvency II, IFRS) affect reserving?

    - What do third parties including auditors, CEOs and Boards require from the reserving process?
