Synopsis: In the second quarter of 2021 the Actuarial Society of Malaysia (ASM) officially endorsed the establishment of a Banking Practice Committee (BPC) to expand the opportunity-set for its’ members. The purpose of the webinar is to raise general awareness of the BPC and to seek buy in from ASM members with respect to the initialisation of the BPC which extends to:

  • Identifying members to sit on the BPC & documenting a Terms of Reference (ToR) for the Committee
  • Working with International Actuarial Societies to adapt Banking Education materials to the local Malaysian banking sector
  • Providing Thought Leadership on Regulatory, Technological, Environmental, Societal and Governance thematic issues impacting the domestic Banking Sector; and
  • Collaborating with International Societies & Affiliated Universities to distil and leverage emerging Actuarial techniques & technologies.

The webinar will use a range of Real-World Case Studies to illustrate potential opportunities that await those Actuaries wishing to pursue a career in the Banking Sector.
