Resources for Subject SA1 Health and Care

Suggested additional reading for Subject SA1 Health and Care

Students may find it useful to consult some of the suggested reading listed in Unit 18 of the SA1 Core Reading to obtain a wider appreciation or different viewpoint when studying a particular topic.

However, students are not expected to have read all of the items on the list or to have gained a detailed knowledge of any particular topic additional to that contained in the Core Reading. Equally, students may use other sources of information to enhance their wider understanding, such as:

  • The financial press and weekend supplements
     
  • The trade press, particularly those that specialise in health and care
     
  • Publications and websites of reinsurers and actuarial consultancies
     
  • Information on the websites of bodies such as the ABIPRA and FSA
     
  • Papers from the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries and the Staple Inn Actuarial Society (see also below)
     
  • Continuous Mortality Investigation bulletins
     
  • Presentations made at recent Health and Care Conferences
     
  • Health related presentations made at recent conventions for younger members or for other practice areas (e.g. Life, General Insurance)
     
  • Health Seminars arranged by the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries

    The importance of biodiversity for finance, business and policy is being increasingly recognised.

The management and measurement of these risks is a field where actuaries are well placed to contribute.
