This Working Party functions as a source of knowledge and expertise within the Actuarial Profession on matters relating to flooding with a particular focus on the UK.

Key objectives:

  • develop the Profession’s position on UK flooding – including but not limited to insurance matters (this would cover affordability, availability, and related matters such as resilience and planning)
  • produce reference material for UK actuaries when considering flood in pricing, capital modelling, reserving, or related areas such as:
    • Relevant factors to consider when selecting and using a model
    • Variety in flood events
    • Considering climate change
  • build on the body of previous work to improve the understanding of flood risk amongst the industry, government, and public including:
    • producing a GIRO paper (2015) (and digestible summary) to raise awareness amongst the profession of flood-related issues
    • making our findings available to the wider insurance community and informing debate, via participation in third party events
    • press releases in coordination with other relevant working parties and sub-committees
  • gather data and opinions from the industry to inform the above
  • work with industry bodies to report on market developments (availability and affordability of flood insurance) following the expected launch of Flood Re in mid-2015.

    We continue to live in a world of global uncertainty. Survival depends on our ability to simultaneously navigate through the diverse root-causes, ranging from: the consequences of Climate Change; transitioning to Net Zero; increased inflationary pressures and supply chain issues; to self-imposed changes in regulatory requirements. CILA 2022 focuses on these challenges to ensure we continue to be informed and remain battle ready, as well as showcasing highlights of recent CMI outputs.

    This webinar will cover:

    • Some background on the risks of misselling in an ESG context, including the DWS case

    • Achieving positive impact is a strong antidote to the risks of greenwashing or ESG misselling, however this risks having a tension with fiduciary responsibilities

    • This tension can be resolved with a concept called Universal Ownership

    • Under Universal ownership, investors have an appetite to make a loss in order to achieve positive impact, and yet still have no compromise on their fiduciary responsibilities

    This session will focus on the transformation roadmap of the healthcare sector in KSA and the role of actuarial capabilities in enhancing its evolution to the desired end stage as per the objectives of the Vision 2030. The discussion will focus how the system has evolved so far and shed light on  the expected future changes. Through examining  the transformation, we will highlight how the sector is and can use actuarial  expertise to not only assist with this transformation but also use basic actuarial principles to identify the key risks and their respective mitigation strategies.
