Tuesday 6 September 2016, 2:00pm-3:00pm (BST) at the RSS International Conference in Manchester, UK.

A Journey into the Uncertain: Identifying and Modelling Risk in Financial Services
Ashley Kanter (Analytics Manager, Aviva)

In this presentation Ashley will describe his experience working in the finance sector at Legal & General. In particular, he will describe how uncertainty features strongly in the structure and pricing of pensions - and how statisticians are well-placed to tame it. The focus of Ashley’s presentation will be on both the use of statistical techniques in this setting and also on how he has influenced his organisation to implement his work. Thus his presentation will cover the range of technical and non-technical skills and knowledge that he has found necessary to make an impact. The presentation will be suitable for a non-financial audience. Issues will be introduced generally at a high level, although some basic financial concepts will be covered.
