Launch of the first Actuarial Research Centre

50 business leaders, academics and MSPs met at the Scottish Parliament to celebrate the opening of the new Actuarial Research Centre (ARC) earlier this month.

Mark McDonald, MSP welcomed the audience and outlined some of the areas where the profession has already been interacting with politicians. He also said that they would welcome any input from the profession, which aligned to their public affairs objective.

The centre is set up in the same month that marks 250 years since the birth of actuarial work in life offices.  The first Director of the ARC, Professor Andrew Cairns spoke of his vision for the centre, collaborating with business, developing academic disciplines and researchers that will be an asset to industry.
