Ongoing Project

Capacity Building for Insurance Supervisors-Leveraging Actuarial Skills

The Training “Capacity Building for Insurance Supervisors-Leveraging Actuarial Skills” is jointly organised by the International Actuarial Association (IAA), the International Association of Insurance Supervisors (IAIS) and the Access to Insurance Initiative (A2ii) and funded by the UK Department for International Development. 

The objective of the training is to strengthen the understanding and application of actuarial concepts and tools needed to support effective insurance supervision and regulation. The key focus is on effective risk-based supervision, and the transition to such, from simple solvency regimes. The syllabus is broken into 4 components:

  • Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) and Insurer Failure
  • Valuation and Actuarial Reports
  • Risk-Based Capital
  • Reinsurance and Contextual Issues
  •  

Training techniques

The focus and approach of the training will be on teaching principles while making the training as practical and as simple as possible. The training techniques will involve a range of lecture-based, case studies, break out sessions and quizzes with the intention to make the training as interactive as possible.
