The Actuarial Standards of Practice (ASOP) recently issued ASOP No. 46 (Risk Evaluation in Enterprise Risk Management) and ASOP No. 47 (Risk Treatment in Enterprise Risk Management) which took effect in May of this year. These two standards require actuaries to consider the financial strength, risk profile, risk management system and risk environment of an organization when performing ERM work. As ERM is increasingly becoming a vital activity in every business, actuaries need to understand how to use it to paint a complete picture for their clients.
The Knowledge Group has assembled a team of distinguished practitioners and thought leaders who will help you understand the most important aspects and latest updates to these standards. They will present valuable information and insight along with best practices to comply with ASOP No. 46 and ASOP No. 47 in a two-hour live webcast.
