Web Session "Whistleblowing – Practical Education for Actuaries" on 8 December 2022
Early Bird until Thursday, 27 October 2022!

Web Session "How Can Actuaries Tackle Inflation and its Consequences?" on 8 February 2023
It is not that long ago that even ECB-Directors were clearly stating that the heightened inflation rates were only temporary. Even shortly before Christmas 2021 this statement was firmly positioned. It did not hold for long in 2022.
What are the main drivers for the change of opinion? Without being exhaustive the following points can be mentioned:

  • Central Bank’s quantitative easing actions
  • Increase of energy prices (esp. oil and gas)
  • Increase of Wheat prices
  • Increase of prices of semiconductors

These effects were significantly stressed by:

  • The war in the Ukraine
  • The ESG effects (Carbon certificates and pricing increases due to tax effects over CO2  levies).

Inflation comes with many challenges for businesses in general and insurance business in particular. Due to the long term nature of the business inflation can be very toxic. This is especially true for situation of negative real interest rates, which we have seen for some time now. The situation has changed since the Ukraine war. The FED and the ECB have increased interest rates just recently. Real rates are still negative.

The learning objectives of this course are:

  • Understand the various forms of inflation and its historical impact
  • Understand the drivers for inflation and the indicators to be monitored
  • Practise the vulnerability analysis of the business model
  • Understand the potential risk mitigation actions
