Member-led research working parties are volunteer-led working groups which conduct research on timely topics of wide interest in the practice area and the profession.
The Risk Management Research and Thought Leadership Committee has oversight of all the working parties listed below and encourages them to undertake research that can be shared with Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA) members via sessional papers, articles in The Actuary or the British Actuarial Journal (BAJ), and presentations at conferences and workshops.
Risk Management research working parties:
- Cyber Risk Investigation - providing insight to actuaries working on capital requirements for insurers setting out the potential impact of cyber risk events and the measures available to mitigate this risk
- Data Visualisation - to raise awareness of visualisations, useful when performing risk modelling
- Innovation of Risk Management - researching the extent to which innovation of second line activity is possible over a 5, 10 and 20 year horizon
- Operational Risk (OR) - a Cross Practice Working Party that acts as the conduit for Operational Risk (OR) research across all practice areas
- Risk Management in a Digital World - forming views and recommendations to assist actuarial practitioners in risk management considerations relating to operating in a digital world
- Wider Fields Group - the general purpose of the working party is to help promote the potential for actuaries to use their risk skills to work in areas beyond the traditional practice areas
