12:30pm Registration
1:00-4:00pm: Four exciting sessions covering the following topics:


Bonds, Buildings, and Blueberries

Have you ever thought about what life insurers do with premiums? Life insurance is unique in that actuaries need to invest premiums for decades before delivering on obligations. Join John Hancock actuaries as they discuss what dictates how companies invest their assets and see why blueberries are so important!



Secondary Impacts of LDTI on Life and Health Audits

The new guidance Long Duration Targeted Improvements (LDTI) has significantly changed how insurers account for and make disclosures about long-duration contracts, but how has it impacted actuarial audits? In this session, we’ll discuss the targeted improvements and how the accounting change has impacted actuarial auditors and their audit clients.


PROFESSIONALISM: The Code, the ASOPs, and the ABCD

Get a valuable reminder of the precepts of the Code of Professional Conduct, which is the foundation of actuarial professionalism including your professional ethical responsibilities, compliance with actuarial standards of practice (ASOPs), and the profession’s self-regulated disciplinary process. Take a deep dive into the role of the Actuarial Board for Counseling and Discipline (ABCD) with a former ABCD chairperson. This discussion will range from the professional guidance the ABCD provides to actuaries through the request for guidance (RFG) process to its critical and multifaceted role in matters of professional discipline.


BREAKOUT SESSION: Health Actuary Round Table

This session will be the initial Health Actuary breakout session of the Actuaries' Club of Boston. The start of the session is a prepared discussion on strengths and weaknesses of the Health RBC formula, what life's like as a health actuary in a company falling below RBC action levels, and the concerning pattern of an increased number of health insurers falling below Mandatory DOI Control Level. The remainder of the session will be an open discussion on general health actuarial topics but time will be reserved to discuss ways the ACB can best meet the needs of health actuaries.
