Webinar: Opportunities for Actuaries in Banking -16 September CANCELLED

Monday 16 September 2019 12:00 - 13:00

The actuarial profession has much to offer the world of banking. In this second webinar on opportunities for actuaries in banking we have two actuaries sharing their experience. They will talk about the opportunities there are in banking; describing the actuarial aspects of the work they do, the roles they see for actuaries and the skills actuaries can bring to the banking industry. They will share their experiences of how they got into banking as well as give their thoughts on how actuaries can enter the banking profession.

Please join this event with the following panellists:

Dick Rae, Chair of the Finance and Investment Board and Chair of the recently re-formed Banking Member Interest Group

Dick spent 15 years in investment banking having worked at JP Morgan, Deutsche Bank and HSBC, before moving into asset management with BMO Global Asset Management.
