Over the last decade, we have seen an increasing number of actuaries expand their roles and responsibilities, not only within the financial services industry, but across other sectors in our society.

The speakers in this plenary will talk to how actuaries in ‘traditional’ roles are thinking outside the box and changing how and when the actuarial skillset is used. We’ll also be getting insights on how insuretech is changing insurance and what this means for the future of actuarial roles in insurance.

As a young actuary, this plenary will give you some thought-starters to reimagine your role, consider how you can approach problems in a new way – how to think about traditional problems differently and broaden the type of work actuaries can be involved in.

The insurance sector is on the front line of the battle against the impact of climate change – it is having to pay out more to policyholders as extreme weather events such as flooding, droughts, storms and heatwaves become more frequent and more severe.

So, how are insurance companies and investment managers thinking through climate risk and changing their practices? Sharanjit Paddam and others will give us real life case studies.

This session will also provide real life examples of how young actuaries can use the Australian Actuaries Climate Index to gain a better understanding of climate risk.

The Hayne Royal Commission exposed failures in governance and systems and will herald change across the financial services industry, including the insurance sector.

As professionals that work in insurance, superannuation, banking and risk it is our responsibility to understand the lessons from the Royal Commission. This session aims to provide insights into the key recommendations and how insurance companies are thinking through, and making changes in practices as a result, from the board through to the actuarial teams. This session will include a workshop with your peers and senior members of the profession to discuss examples relevant to young actuaries.
