The program is in the last stages of being finalised. As to be expected, it will include industry-relevant topics and updates, thought-provoking presentations as well as interactive sessions in the form of workshops, which proved quite popular at the previous Convention.

A diverse range of topics will be presented by experts from the Actuarial industry as well as wider fields, covering not only what is relevant in South Africa currently, but also stretching out to the rest of the globe. The topics were carefully selected with an aim to inspire, educate and entertain the mind while addressing practical problems faced by actuaries and potential solutions to these problems. To highlight but a few:

— Driverless cars: how they work and how they will be priced

— Augmented Reality Insurance: view of a working prototype

— Slaying the dragon: improving individual and company returns on investment in actuarial education

— The Life Esidimeni arbitration and the actuarial quantification of constitutional damages

— Default regulation and investment strategies in retirement

— AI in actuarial science, leadership in the era of InsureTech

— IFRS 17 and SAM implementation learnings

— A formulation of ecological value added
