Craig Turnbull A History of British Actuarial Thought

Sun 22 October 2017

Insurance companies’ investment strategy choices and constraints and the financial, actuarial and regulatory thinking that determine them have, of course, changed greatly over the last 200 years.

But environments somewhat similar to today’s low-for-longer world have been seen before, and some contemporary investment ideas have a historical provenance that is perhaps surprisingly long.

Craig presents some of these observations as he discusses topics from his recent book, A History of British Actuarial Thought, that are of particular interest to investment professionals.

Craig is an Investment Director at Aberdeen Standard Investments where he works in the Insurance Solutions unit, which advises global insurance companies on their investment strategy and its implementation.
