Articles - Actuary seminar offers professionals industry insight


 Actuaries across the country are invited to a free specialised seminar in London to discuss topics relating to pensions and long-term healthcare.

 On Tuesday 17th October, between 2:30pm and 5:30pm actuaries will partake in a seminar at London’s Lancaster Hotel. Hosted by Hazell Carr - the UK’s leading provider of skilled resources operating in the Financial Services industry - the event will offer up-to-date professional knowledge about this ever-changing market.

 Industry-renowned Con Keating from the Brighton Rock Group will be discussing pensions in the UK and Europe, focussing on the efficiency of defined benefit, as well as explaining the defined ambition and individual defined contribution, i.e. the relative efficiencies of different approaches to pension provision.

 Laurence Kleerkoper, former actuary from the Government Actuary’s Department, will examine the main drivers of the need for funding of social care, including residential care, for the elderly. Covering both the cost to the individual and the UK economy, Laurence will touch on the difficulties of measuring and projecting these costs and compare how funding problems are dealt with in other countries.

 The seminar will be accompanied by a drinks reception where attendees will have an opportunity to meet their peers, network, develop industry contacts and share knowledge. In addition, delegates will contribute to their continuing professional development by attending.

 Sonel Mehta, Head of Actuarial Resourcing at Hazell Carr, comments: “With the industry continually changing and evolving, opportunities to share knowledge are vital. We’re aiming to create an event where people can network while hearing from sector specific individuals. The event is also designed to contribute to their ongoing development.”

 Representatives from a wide range of major life and pensions providers, industry regulators and actuarial consultancies will be among those attending.

 The event is open to actuaries; to book a place please contact: Natalie.george@hazellcarr.com.
