Morgan McKinley are delighted to announce a networking webinar for actuaries and banking people managers.  The webinar will illustrate just how transferable actuarial skills in product development, pricing, capital management, and asset-liability management are as between insurance undertakings and credit institutions.

Both the traditional and the fintech banking industry compete for talent in many areas of finance and to date only a small number of such firms have recognised the significant source of talent available in the actuarial profession; fewer still have employed actuaries for roles in pricing, product development, capital management, and asset-liability management in the banking industry.

The webinar will illustrate just how transferable actuarial skills are to the banking industry with detailed examples of the transferability of pricing, product development, capital management, and asset-liability management skills though the personal reflections of the experience of two actuaries who have made the transition. 

There will be time for questions at the end of the webinar
