    The Worshipful Company of Actuaries (WCA) is once again inviting actuaries, and their friends and families, to view the Lord Mayor’s Show - a tradition running for 800 years from 1215 and the oldest, longest and most popular procession in the world - on Saturday, 14th November. Over half a million spectators typically watch the parade.

    Also, if desired, actuaries and guests may arrange to have lunch at a nearby livery hall.

    Viewing the procession

    The procession can be viewed from the streets but thanks to the kind generosity of Barnett Waddingham once again we will have a limited number of places available in their offices at 138 Cheapside, which overlook the procession route and provide an excellent view. You should arrive by 10.30 for the procession which should be seen from around 11.00 until 11.45. Tea/coffee will be provided.

    Capacity is limited so please book early.

    If you would like to attend the viewing of the procession, please complete and return the attached form - the deadline is 30 October.

    Lunch at the Ironmongers’s Hall

    Actuaries and their guests may arrange to have lunch at the Ironmonger’ Hall, in Shaftesbury Place, Barbican.

    The hall will be open from 10.45 and lunch will be available from 12.45. Lunch will be a two-course, hot fork buffet and there will be a cash bar - prices are £28.50 for adults and £14.50 for children (under age 14).

    Groups may apply to arrange to sit together or may mix in with those from other livery companies.

    The post of Chief Actuary under the Senior Insurance Managers Regime and the Actuarial Function under Solvency II represent a big change to the actuarial role in General Insurance. A mixture of new regulatory requirements, reporting needs and organisational choices face senior actuaries with associated professional demands such as new practicing certificates.

    The Actuarial Function working party led by Richard Williams has published a paper and given the new regime comes into force with effect from 1 January 2016, this is a timely opportunity to discuss issues and share views on what it means for the profession. It is a chance to hear what giving an opinion as Actuarial Function really means and what technical and report wording issues need to be faced.

    We hope for good attendance and a forward looking discussion about this big opportunity.

    If you are looking for a CPD event that meets the requirements of the IFoA’s Stage 3 Professional Skills Training then this is for you!  This session is suitable for actuaries working in any area (i.e. it is not specifically aimed at Pensions, GI or any other technical discipline).

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

    Unlike previous years, the 2015/2016 content doesn’t focus on a particular theme but covers a broad range of professional issues that can arise in your professional or personal life.
    We aim to avoid overlap with video case studies used at IFoA conferences, but cannot guarantee that there will be no duplication in content.

    This session will qualify for two hours of Professional Skills CPD, under the IFoA’s CPD Scheme 2015/2016.

    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.

    So you’re FIA, mid-career, and thinking that you’d like a Non-Executive Directorship in a few years’ time…what should you be doing now to ensure you are well placed and adequately prepared for board service? 

    We want to explore how actuaries can increase their chances of being selected for NED roles. What knowledge, skills and experience over and beyond actuarial training will make you an attractive candidate? What sort of personalities and mindset does the role demand? And once appointed, what capabilities will best equip you to be a good NED

    This is an event for everyone interested in the NED role with particular emphasis on aspiring NEDs and the newly appointed. If you’re an established NED please share your thoughts of your early days. If you’re thinking of NED roles in the future, or struggling to get your first position and wondering why there are no takers, come and pick up some valuable advice. And if you have negotiated the recruitment process successfully and are a newly appointed NED, tell us how you did it and whether your preconceptions of the role have been borne out in practice.

    Registration:  17.30 - 18.00

    Programme: 18.00 - 19.30

    Networking reception: 19.30 - 20.30

    As financial institutions increasingly appreciate the imperative of climate change, resource scarcity and other environmental challenges, there is a growing recognition that the financial system must not only be sound and stable, but also sustainable.  In response to this, the IFoA’s Resource and Environment Board commissioned a comprehensive research project that involved the examination of a number of academic journals, with the purpose of determining a direct relationship between research and how it applies to actuarial work.  Join Professor Richard Werner, Director of the Centre for Banking, Finance and Sustainable Development, as he delivers his views on the link between finance and sustainability issues and the impact it may have on the ‘real world’.  Hear from the editors of the review as they address the core aim of the research, discuss the results of the review, the implications of these results and the options for advancing a sustainable financial system in the actuarial world.  

    Aimed at anyone who has an interest in the world of sustainability and its connection to the financial system, this event is ideal for those who would like to determine the potential benefits that actuarial practice could provide for the economy, environment and society in a more sustainable world. 

    Speakers; Professor Richard Werner, University of Southampton and Simon Jones, Hymans Robertson LLP

    With increasing focus on capital modelling from Boards, rating agencies, regulators under Solvency II and analysts, this timely seminar provides time to step out of the day-to-day and consider:

    • Other external perspectives on capital modelling, and its uses; and
    • The next steps in improving capital models.

    The seminar will cover a variety of topics from the value of Internal Model output to senior management, boards and investors to future technical developments in ESGs, cat models and capital modelling software.  There will be plenty of scope for discussion with the speakers and other capital modellers, and we hope that you will find the seminar interesting and thought-provoking.

    Primarily actuaries involved in capital modelling and risk should attend, but also anybody involved in the modelling process or with an interest in the output and use of models. All levels of technical background welcome.  In general, the seminar is not geographically specific, but the PRA presentation will be UK focussed.
