Yorkshire Actuarial Society

The Yorkshire Actuarial Society (YAS) was founded in 1981 as a society for Students, Associates and Fellows of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA)

Meetings are normally held on a Tuesday or Wednesday in York or Leeds and start at 18.00.  The sessions usually last one hour.

The YAS is free to join and new members and visitors are very welcome

The Committee is keen to receive ideas for technical and social events from members in the Yorkshire area and beyond.  If you have an idea for an event, please let the committee know.

Forthcoming events

Title The New TAS
Date 3 May 2016
Time 17.45 - c19.00  (Please note earlier start time than normal)
Venue Deloitte, 1 City Square, Leeds

The Financial Reporting Council is keen to ensure that actuaries are aware of the revised standards and are engaging with the actuarial community affected by these changes.  The session provides an overview of the content of the TAS’s, the approach taken to updating them and brings out some of the key feedback that influenced the final versions, as well as providing an opportunity for asking questions about the revised TAS.    

The first half of the presentation will be on TAS 100 and the second half will split into two simultaneous breakout sessions, one on TAS 200 and one on TAS 300.  They will include case studies.

Bookings Please contact Malcolm Slee by 26 April if you are coming, and indicate if you would join the TAS 200 or TAS 300 breakout session.
