CAA Weekly News Update -1st April

Our webinar last Wednesday was a great success with attendees from among our membership, the banking community and other non-actuaries and non-bankers. We heard from actuaries working in the banking sector in the Caribbean and South Africa as well as several other engaging speakers. The full recording of Episode 12 Diversity of Thought: Opportunities for Actuaries in Banking will shortly be available on actuview.

In the meantime, you might enjoy Diversity of Thought Episode 11:   Disruptions in the Banking System

Last Sunday’s webinar geared towards Actuarial Students was also very successful. Attendees included not only students from regional high schools and universities but some from outside the region. The recording will soon be available on our YouTube channel.
