The actuarial profession can provide clarity in times of turmoil like the current global financial crisis. This is reflected in our 2009 Convention theme: "clarity in a complex world". The role of the actuary is continually evolving and the work we do must always adapt to reflect changing economic and political landscapes. By understanding the drivers of change, we can ensure that we are truly providing clarity to the industries we serve.
