The Shanghai regional group was also formed in 2010 by volunteers who organised regular events for Shaighai-based members of the Insitute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA)
The Shanghai 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 IFoA members in Shanghai.
Today all Shanghai activities are organised by Wen Li, the IFoA's representative in South East Asia, with the help of volunteers from the group
Many of the group's activities are held jointly with the Beijing regional group, using video conferencing when speakers are based in Beijing
There are at least four technical events a year in Shanghai including talks given during visits from the IFoA Presidential team and executive
Technical events can be exclusively for IFoA members, or they can be joint events with local insurance companies. Events with local insurance companies are normally held during visits from the IFoA Presidential team in order to expand the influence of the actuarial profession. Shanghai events also attract members from other actuarial societies such as the Society of Actuaries (SOA) and Actuaried Institute (Australia).
The Shanghai regional group is in the process of arranging its events programme and more information will be available shortly.
If you would like to suggest a topic for a talk or offer the use of your office to host an event please contact Emma Yan or IFoA Regions Manager Tess Joyce.
