Professional Judgement Paper

Speakers: Siegbert Baldauf and Xavier Gómez, members of the AAE Task Force Roles of Actuaries, professional judgment workstream.

Siegbert and Xavier will present the paper on Professional Judgement developed and approved by the AAE. Besides being a well-educated expert, a Fully Qualified Actuary has to adhere to the Code of Conduct and this can be challenging in some cases. Therefore, Siegbert and Xavier will elaborate on the consequences arising from this fact.

Example of challenges with Big data and AI

Speaker: Esko Kivisaari, Immediate Past Chairperson of the AAE, Member of the EIOPA Consultative Expert Group on digital ethics and insurance details.
