A special thanks to the Life committee (under Koo Chung Chang) for organising the excellent inaugural Life Insurance Conference. It was great to see such a range of speakers and topics over the two days. A special thanks to the Institute of Actuaries UK for helping to fund a speaker from the UK who was able to update us on developments in Europe on Solvency II and Risk Management. Raymond again weaved his magic and entertained us with puzzles over dinner. Just remember to pick Mark Birch for your team and table the next time you attend something similar. Well done Mark.
