Description

The time has come for SAAX to explore InsurTech!

Technology is constantly transforming the way that actuaries perform their work. With the depth of intellectual talent and momentum that actuarial software developers have obtained, we can reasonably expect even faster advancement in years to come.

Ever increasing numbers of insurers are challenging the traditional structures of the actuarial, risk and finance function looking at ways to operate faster and more efficiently with the ultimate aim of ensuring individuals have more time to utilise their intellectual capacity to its full potential; and focussing on value-adding tasks and activities.

This interactive session will consider themes developing in the market around InsurTech innovation and the implications for actuaries.

Sign up now for the event, which will be generously hosted by Grant Thornton.

Date: Wednesday 1 November

Time: Registration from 18:00

Venue: Grant Thornton, 30 Finsbury Square, London, EC2P 2YU

Cost: £10.00 including food and drinks.

Registration is via Eventbrite (please confirm your attendance by 17:00 on 18 October 2017.)
