Changing Environment, Emerging Trends and Evolving Regulations – Deja Vu or Crystal Gazing?
Welcome to the Joint Regional Seminar 2019.
The Joint Regional Seminar (JRS) is an annual event co-organized by the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries, Actuaries Institute Australia and Society of Actuaries with the support of the local actuarial societies in the region. It is designed to assist actuaries and other professionals in meeting their CPD requirements.
In today’s dynamic business landscape, insurance companies are facing more than ever critical changes and evolving risks. The industry is undergoing significant regulatory changes with respect to financial reporting standards, capital requirements and supervisory framework. Most notably, the new International Financial Reporting Standard 17 (IFRS 17) will impact on the revenue recognition, data, systems and processes, among many others. A number of regulators are also either introducing risk-based capital (RBC) or revisiting their existing RBC framework. While insurers are relentlessly cracking the new regulatory changes, the business environment continues to be rapidly changing with the emerging trends and demographic shift, including longer life expectancy, ageing population, changing habits and behaviors. Actuaries are playing an increasingly important role in dealing with these challenges and turn them into competitive advantages. Hence the theme of this year’s JRS is “Changing Environment, Emerging Trends and Evolving Regulations – Deja Vu or Crystal Gazing?”
The Joint Regional Seminar qualifies for (Actuaries Institute Australia / IFoA / SOA / ASHK) Continuing Professional Development (CPD). Actuarial members may find it a useful contribution to their personal professional development. E.g., A maximum of 6 CPD hours* can be claimed from the Hong Kong JRS. The amount of hours recorded is left to the discretion of the individual.
* 1 CPD hour = 60 minutes
