One Day seminar: Risks in Life Insurance

Tuesday 6 February 2018 09:00 - 17:00

This seminar will provide insights on how risk functions are evolving and lines 1 and 2 are working together to influence Board risk strategies now that Solvency 2 has been implemented. Within this context, the seminar also provides the opportunity to engage with current risks such as longevity and market risks while also exploring emerging risks from the growing digitisation of the industry.  

While primarily aimed at actuaries in Life offices who are not in a line 2 function, this seminar would also be useful for actuaries in other practice areas, such as Finance and Investment or Health and Care who are interested in understanding key issues and developments in the “risk world”.
