A variety of ethical issues

Every year the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA) creates some online Professional Skills Training materials to assist members in meeting their Professional Skills Training requirements

Details of the requirements for Professional Skills Training Stage 3 are specified in the 2016/2017 CPD Scheme

If you are one of the 12,000 or so members who are required to complete the Stage 3 PST, you may be interested in the IFoA’s online CPD content

This is specifically designed to illustrate how the Actuaries’ Code can help you with some of the challenges you may face in your daily personal and/or professional life, and guide you in making good ethical decisions when faced with complex professional dilemmas.  Unlike previous years, the 2015/2016 content doesn’t focus on a particular theme but covers a broad range of professional issues.  Access the video case studies.

You may of course source relevant CPD from other providers so long as it meets the objectives set out in the 2016/2017 CPD Scheme

To reduce buffering issues and improve the user experience, we recommend that you access the videos from a home PC or a mobile 4G connection, as these usually deliver more bandwidth than corporate networks where bandwidth may be limited.

    In this webinar, we will discuss how cause-of-death data from the Office for National Statistics can help us to understand how inequalities arise at the all-cause level. The key to understanding mortality inequality is to think about the chain that connects risk factors, relative risks, and cause-of-death mortality through to all-cause mortality.

    The importance of biodiversity for finance, business and policy is being increasingly recognised. While many studies highlight the overall economic impact that biodiversity loss could have, it is much more difficult to quantify and understand the particular impact that is may have on individual businesses or communities. The management and measurement of these risks is a field where actuaries are well placed to contribute.

    The climate crisis and the degradation of our planet will affect societies everywhere. How we address these threats will require solutions that transcend borders.
