COVID-19 Daily Update – June 17

Dear Colleagues,

I have not shared any links today. I will tomorrow.

Keep the feedback coming and remember to share with us any articles or links which might be particularly relevant to the Caribbean or your area of expertise.

Reminding everyone that the CAA is now an ActuView Partner and can access hundreds of videos from actuarial conferences, colloquia and seminars. This is especially useful now when we can’t travel and is an invaluable resource for fulfilling CPD.

Our membership also gives access to students enrolled in the Actuarial Science Programmes at UWI, Mona and St. Augustine. A great study tool!
