 6th August 2018

At S31 Sukhumvit Hotel

Dear all,

The Society of Actuaries of Thailand is delighted to invite you to "Joint Regional Seminar 2018" as detail below:

Objective:  The Joint Regional Seminar (JRS) is an annual event co-organized by the Institute & 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. Society of Actuaries of Thailand is pleased to be once again hosting the JRS, which will take place on 6 Aug 2018 in Bangkok.

The Seminar:  Increasing digitization in the insurance industry is becoming more certain as a trend for where we are heading towards. In reality, we have already seen its impact being felt in areas such as business strategy, marketing philosophy and product offerings. It has driven changes to companies’ organizational structure and work culture in order to further embrace the challenges and opportunities arising in the new digital world. These changes happening as well as associated challenges are not just impacting corporations, but are very relevant to our Actuarial profession. Like the technology itself, insurers’ understanding of the impact of digitization is evolving rapidly. Not long ago we were asking the question “Is this important?”. Now the question has become “What do we do about it?”. Hence the theme of this year’s JRS is “Back to the Future – Challenges and Opportunities in an Increasingly Digital World”.

Some key topics in the Bangkok JRS are:

  • How Digital is Changing Insurance Asset Management - Now and In the Future (by Aberdeen Standard Investments)
  • Implementing Artificial Intelligence with Big Data for Life and Health Insurers - A Case Study on Digital Intervention Solution (by EY)
  • Role of Technology in Driving Transformation of the Insurance Industry – Catalyst, Driver, Incubator? (by Willis Towers Watson)
