The Institute and Faculty of Actuaries' (IFoA's) Beijing group was formed in 2010 by a few active volunteers who organised local events
The Beijing group was formed to provide a platform for members:
- to better engage with each other
- to discuss local issues, and
- to build a bridge between the IFoA in the UK and members in Beijing.
Today all Beijing activities are organised by Wen Li, the IFoA's representative in South East Asia, with the help of volunteers from the group
There are at least four technical events a year in Beijing, including talks given during visits by the IFoA's presidential team and executive
Meetings held during presidential team visits are often held jointly with local insurance companies with the aim of expanding the influence of the actuarial profession, and often attract members from other actuarial societies, such as the Society of Actuaries and the Australian Actuarial Society.
There is also the occasional social event which aims to bring all Beijing-based members together.
The Beijing regional group is in the process of arranging their events programme and more information will be available shortly.
