    At retirement, it has become very popular for those with Defined Contribution (DC) pensions to choose drawdown rather than an annuity, but drawing a sustainable lifetime income in this way is an impossible challenge for most people. We consider a Decumulation Pathway for the typical consumer, where a small part of the DC fund is set aside for any flexible access and legacy requirements. The bulk is then used to provide a lifetime income, utilising the pooling or insuring of longevity risk.

    As current global events continue to demonstrate, geopolitical tensions present significant risks to corporates of all sizes. However, these types of risk are often not given the discussion time it needs at the board level or executive committee levels, nor the resources required to anticipate, analyse and mitigate them effectively.

    We’ve all heard about the gender pay gap. Sadly, the gap doesn’t just exist with base pay.

    Research carried out by Legal & General in 2021 across the four million members in our Defined Contribution (DC) pensions, found that there’s a gender pension gap too, continuing the divide between men and women.

    The benefits  of Mindfulness and self-awareness have regularly featured in some way in the media over the past few years. It has long been recognised by practitioners that mindfulness leads to a calmer and clearer state of mind, and better interaction with others around us… But what about the impact of mindfulness in the demanding professional context and senior governance roles?

    The latest IPCC report highlights the inequity of climate change, with those least responsible bearing many of the worst impacts. This event covers the unequal impacts of climate change, the role of policy and regulation in incorporating justice into the low carbon transition and the impact investors can have in encouraging companies to develop Just Transition plans, with speakers from the investor community, the consultant community and the policy making sphere.

    Systems thinking is essential in tackling the increasingly interconnected and complex problems in companies and the financial system today and is increasing being used by actuaries. Systems Dynamics is a key tool in the system thinker’s toolbox and deals with how thing change through time, which includes much in business and society. It uses modelling and computer simulation to take the knowledge we already have about details in the world around us to show why our social systems behave the way they do, and how to improve the situation.

    Although at least 1 in 7 people are estimated to be neurodivergent – that is, they have an alternative thinking style - neurodiversity has only recently become a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) focus within financial services. It is a paradox that only 22% of autistic adults in the UK are in any kind of employment, when many have the skills that are sought in an actuary of the future.

    Whilst there is little doubt that actuaries have a mastery of the technical aspects of risk management, they may not be as well-equipped in other essential skills for senior risk roles. Risk is a broad discipline, whose practitioners come from diverse backgrounds – including legal, compliance, financial and operational.  Actuaries who aim to move into Chief Risk Officer roles will need not just technical skills but also strengths in areas such as communication, strategic awareness and stakeholder management.

    Due to the roles that we fulfil, and our professional obligations to put public interests ahead of our individual interests, we as actuaries are uniquely placed to consider the long-term impacts of changes to our investment landscapes.  In this event, one of the co-chairs of the Economics Member Interest Group will come together with an investment manager and representation from the academic research community, to explore the potential impacts of our societal shift to net-zero emissions on long-term investment returns.
