Innovations in Life Product Development & Management
Products and all related features and options are the core service of a life insurance company. In the recent past, defensive topics such as risk management and new solvency regimes have been predominant and they have triggered new product developments decisively. However, new developments have still some further motives. Since products generate new business and profits, knowledge on products and their potential of innovation is essential nowadays.
Organised by the EAA - European Actuarial Academy GmbH in co-operation with the Dutch Actuarieel Instituut (AI).
The seminar is suited for actuaries and actuarial trainees as well as life insurance professionals who are directly or indirectly involved in product management, product development (projects), investment management, product strategy projects or corporate and business development.
No laptop is needed for this seminar.
