Naveena James, a volunteer for the IFoA’s Sustainable Finance Community, sat down with Dr. James Wilde, Chief Sustainability Officer (CSO) of Phoenix Group, the UK’s largest long-term savings and retirement business, to chat about sustainability.
For the first time in the Middle East, a comprehensive initiative to develop actuarial capacity was launched and announced last June in Manama, the Capital of Bahrain, making it the starting ground for developing qualified actuaries across the GCC and the rest of the MENA region.
The next blog in the series of Good Actuarial Reports sets out what can be done while undertaking the analysis to ensure that your user needs will be met and can be communicated appropriately in your report.
In the 2nd blog on Actuarial Reports, we look at the four key elements of the planning process for any project, and how writing a good report should be viewed as the communication of the project undertaken (covering the assumptions made, the methodology used and the results obtained) not as an extra work-stream of the project.
Actuarial papers can have many different tasks and a range of stakeholders. Before you wade into the report and try your best to keep everyone happy all the time, it can be helpful to step back and try to articulate why and how your report is complicated.
Dave Matthews, Head of PRT Quote Production, Legal & General, discusses the IFoA’s Mental Health Working Party’s work on the changes to the actuarial syllabus and recaps the week of mental health podcasts from February.
