Description:

Dive into InsurTech with Google and Uber’s first actuarial hire, Frank Chang. The actuarial profession is evolving rapidly due to ubiquitous trends in the financial sphere like the rise of InsurTech and the constantly increasing demand for data scientists and analysts. This is paired with the emerging risks associated with industry-disrupting developments like short-term vacation rentals, vehicle-sharing, ride-sharing, and even drones. Many companies with a deep dependence on technology, like Google, Uber, and Lyft, as well as InsurTech companies such as Lemonade, Root, and Hippo, employ actuaries to assist with both traditional and some very non-traditional actuarial work.

This ACTEX eLearning Webinar will discuss these important trends, with emphasis on the many critical roles modern-day actuaries play in the complex world of InsurTech. Specifically, we will explore how actuarial techniques will be leveraged to resolve a broad range of insurance – and non-insurance – problems. And toward that end, we will also look at some of the tools used by, and coming into use by actuaries involved in the exciting world of InsurTech.

Learning Objectives:
  • Become familiar with how actuaries are being employed within technology companies in roles outside of traditional actuarial duties, including:
  • Emerging Risk Management Scenarios
  • Generating Data Analysis & Data Science Results
  • Developing Finance Options in Unknown Territory
  • New Product Design and Risk Assessment
  • Identify how to apply actuarial techniques to non-insurance problems
  • Recognize the data analysis tools being used by technology companies to enable development of new and potentially disruptive products

Who Should Attend This Webinar?

Every actuary, finance, or risk professional interested in learning more about the intersection of insurance and technology to better future-proof their careers, and the intellectually curious actuaries who are looking to gain additional perspectives on their changing profession.

Presenter: Frank Chang, Ph.D., FCAS

Frank Chang is currently in charge of Safety and Insurance Analytics globally at Uber. Frank’s team consists of actuaries, data scientists, data analysts, and business intelligence professionals responsible for “driving” new insights and innovatively improving Safety and Insurance for all users of Uber's platform. Frank's career as a non-traditional actuary in Tech began in 2012, when he joined Google as their first, and Lead Actuary, responsible for pricing, reserving, credit and risk modeling. Prior to his transition to Tech, Frank worked in various traditional actuarial roles covering personal, commercial, and specialty line pricing as well as reserving and reinsurance at Fireman's Fund and Esurance.
