Registration is now open for the Pinnacle APEX Webinar, So You Want to Be An Innovative Actuary.

Join Rob Walling and Kendra Letang as they examine several case studies of challenges faced by actuaries working in innovative industries or coverage segments. Areas such as vehicle sharing, the gig economy, telematics, medical technology, e-tail shipping insurance, and COVID business interruption have meant new complications for actuaries and their work. We will examine how the Actuarial Standards of Practice (ASOPs) provide valuable guidance to help actuaries deal with these obstacles.
