One of the strategic objectives of the Society is to support members who wish to develop their skills in non-traditional areas of work such as aviation finance. The Society actively organises events and talks in non-core actuarial areas, mainly via the Wider Fields Committee and the Banking and Aviation Finance Subcommittee. This way interested members can benefit from a variety of aviation finance sessions, support materials, and opportunities for networking and sharing experiences.
At the Banking and Aviation Finance Subcommittee networking events, participants have the opportunity to meet people with actuarial and/or accounting backgrounds working in aviation. The committee has also invited guests such as Aengus Kelly, CEO of AerCap, Ruth Kelly CEO of Goshawk and Joe O'Mara, Head of Aviation Finance & Leasing at KPMG to discuss aircraft leasing in Ireland (see links below):
