Skilled actuaries required

Since the upheaval of pension freedoms in 2015 when drawdown rules were relaxed and annuity sales declined, the role of actuaries in the DC space has been fairly limited. But things may be set to change with the advent of Collective Defined Contribution (CDC) schemes.Towards the end of 2018 the government opened a consultation on this new type of pension saving vehicle which has proved popular in places like the Netherlands.

What does the ideal actuarial consultant look like

We recently published our Navigating Change report, which looks at the changing role of the actuarial consultant. One issue that struck me was the wide range of responses from pension scheme trustees as to what they look for in their ideal actuarial consultant, as well as the areas where actuaries have sometimes been found to fall short of expectations.

The Ecosystem of Trust

Insurance is generally regarded as a background product, one of the necessities of life that most people have but do not regard as very exciting when compared to most of their other possessions. Rarely do you find people snapping or instagraming the moment when their policy proposal is accepted. In a world when even the most mundane events are seen as fodder for the voracious social media beasts, the highpoint of the insurance cycle doesn’t quite make the cut.
