“The Post-pandemic Actuarial World”

Wednesday 8th & Thursday 23rd September 2021

Virtual Seminar


Dear all,

The Society of Actuaries of Thailand is delighted to invite you to "Joint Regional Seminar 2021" 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. We took a break last year and now we are back.  We hope you have been keeping well.  For the safety of our participants during COVID times, the Organising Committee has decided to run a virtual JRS instead.  A half-day regional programme will be presented in the afternoon on 8 September 2021 hosted virtually in Hong Kong for all participants from the Asia region.  SOAT will virtually host the half-day programme in Bangkok on 23 September 2021.

The Seminar:  The COVID-19 pandemic has presented unprecedented challenges and evolving risks in a rapidly changing regulatory environment for the insurance industry.  The pandemic’s implications for the industry will have largely been felt through many aspects of the business - muted earnings, investment portfolio stress, escalated mortality claims, distribution difficulties, operational and workforce disruptions, and much more.  To weather the crisis and uncertainties and keep up with the evolving regulatory, technological and business landscapes, actuaries have a significant role to play in helping the industry adapt to a post-pandemic world.  Hence the theme of JRS 2021 is “The Post-pandemic Actuarial World”.  To register for the JRS, please visit the local association’s website for details.
