News Update – September 16

Hi Everyone,

Remember to send your submissions and ideas in time for next Wednesday’s Open Mic!

We have no Open Mic topic submitted today so we thought we’d share a few Actuarial Blogs we’ve come across:

  • ProActuary, a new website which we’ve already shared, is compiled by an FIA who is also a university lecturer. Blog posts and more, including useful information for students.
  • ActuarialZone is popular with aspiring actuaries.
  • Here’s a blog/forum on Reddit which students may find useful.
  • Actuarial Eye from an actuary in Sydney, Australia.
  • MJ the Fellow Actuary is a video blog from South Africa.
  • Ken Buffin is an economist, statistician and actuary. Here’s the newsletter/blog from the Buffin Foundation.
  • Actuary Out of the Box may be someone we know!

Please visit our website, Facebook page and LinkedIn page.

Best Regards,

Shubhash & Betty

COVID-19 Update – September 1

Dear Colleagues,

A message from the CAA Board:

“We are aware that the following CAA members/supporters are candidates for positions in the Society of Actuaries:

Nazir Valani – Board

Stephen Cameron – Product Development Section

Stephanie Banfield – Reinsurance Section

Simone Davis – Smaller Insurance Company Section

We encourage you to consider voting for them if you are eligible to do so. Polls close on September 4.

We also encourage all CAA members, especially younger members, to volunteer for service in the CAA and their other actuarial associations, whether for elected positions or to serve on committees. 

It builds networks, develops you personally and professionally (CPD), and increases your marketability.”

COVID-19 Update

Dear Colleagues,

A few personal comments:

  1. Wearing masks when in public is essential. While some may argue that Sweden proves the opposite; note that the Swedes are a very disciplined society when compared to most. They have mastered social distancing and practise it to good effect.
  2. Avoid crowds and any contact that may expose you to the risk of contracting COVID-19.
  3. Even though you may believe that you will not be affected health wise if you contract COVID-19remember that we don’t know the impact later on in life.
  4. Have a sanitising protocol when entering your home after being in public spaces.
  5. Focus on your Immunity – nutrition, exercise and attention to health.
  6. COVID-19 will affect us to this extent for at least another 18 months, so we need to adjust our lifestyles to maintain our health in the future.
