Ambition Boardroom Series: To a New Actuarial Age

Back to events
05 October 2017 18:30-21:00 Ambition, #14-62 Office Tower 2, One Raffles Place, S048616


The role of an actuary is changing. InsurTechs are disrupting the traditionally slow-moving insurance companies by cutting unnecessary costs and increasing efficiency. Data analysts are now taking over work historically done by actuaries. Disruption has been happening since the beginning of time and actuaries are no exception to the rule. How can we make sure actuarial professionals stay relevant and adapt with a changing industry?

Join us at this exclusive Ambition Boardroom Series event for actuarial professionals, 'Beyond Traditional Insurance: To a New Actuarial Age', featuring our distinguished guest speakers, Roberto Malattia and Weihao Choo, who will be sharing their insights and experience on how the modern actuary can manage constant changes in the market in order to stay ahead.
