Post EOM4 Quickwich Task 2

Hope someone could offer some kind help! I have searched through past threads but it looks like due to the change of exercise, I cannot find discussions addressing my problem =(

1. I firstly want to confirm if the ASOP #23 mentioned in task 2 is the document at http://www.actuarialstandardsboard.o...sop023_141.pdf

2. I am planning to evaluate the data based on criteria listed in Section 3. Analysis of Issues and Recommended Practices, and try to address the points in Section 4. Communications and Disclosures. Is that what this task wants us to do?

3. In the Segal, P174 CALCULATE BASELINE COMPANY VALUE, financial projection and recent financials are needed. Those data are back to 2012, so I guess anyway it cannot qualify to develop baseline company value as now it is 2017...?

4. Could someone share a format of this memo? I see questions about the structure of this memo before, but it looks like very few people answered it.

5. How many evaluation points/bullet points did you guys list? I only have four aspects including financials not so recent...I feel that might be too few.

Thank you folks!

1. Yes, that's it.
2. in looking at my memo, it looks like I referenced section 3 a lot, but made no mention of section 4.
3. I entirely ignored the fact that it's 2017 and pretended that it's 2012.
4. I had an introductory paragraph and a bunch of bullet points based on the ASOP and the data.

That's solid progress. My EOM1 is not graded yet. Feel like whatever I do cannot catch up with the change...

module 7 is hard

they are grading fast now. they had been stalled for a while but recently added graders and seem to be flying through submissions. when did you submit module 1? you might get results very soon.

i got results for both modules 3 and 4 last week.

just plow through it and don't worry about grading time. apparently they changed the rules where you don't actually need credit for IA in order to do FA anymore. so plow through it and wait.

Would try my best

I submitted my EOM1 on 10/11 and EOM2 on 10/27. EOM3 last month...Hope to finish EOM4 task 2 and 3 today. Targeting to submit EOM4 before next weekend (can be too ideal!)

How many evaluation points/bullet points did you list? I only have four aspects including financials not so recent...I feel that might be too few.
