What does ESG mean in Insurance?
By Elise Chee, Actuarial Director, PwC Singapore
We have heard so much about climate change and ESG. But what does it really mean in the context of the insurance industry? How is climate change and ESG relevant to actuaries and other insurance professionals? Does the rapid pace of regulatory change really require our urgent call to action?
In this session, Elise will share succinctly on the relevance of climate change and ESG to insurance and the wider financial services industry. The increased global focus and rapid pace of regulatory change call for us actuaries to make a serious response to ESG issues within the financial service sector. At the end, Elise will also share what actuaries can do to contribute to ESG and some practical tips to overcome challenges faced.
Applying Predictive Analytics: What actuaries can do to create a more sustainable future?
By Timothy Cheng, Project Manager, GlobeScan
From bushfire in Australia to Typhoon Ulysses in the Philippines, there are more extreme weather events around the world. The whole economy and insurance industry are suffering from catastrophic losses. Actuaries have also started taking it seriously, by providing data like Actuaries Climate Index (ACI) and more climate insurance products in the market.
With all these great initiatives, how could we go one step further in creating a bigger societal impact? In this session, Timothy will share his sustainability research and consulting work at GlobeScan, covering topics like sustainable shopping and biodiversity conversation. He will go through the process of analyzing related data by predictive analytics techniques like GLM, decision trees and topic modelling.
