Each year, the Kactu’z Association, a not-for-profit organisation established in 2003, hosts an event designed to assemble all members of the French Actuarial Profession in Paris.
Membership of the Kactu’z association includes actuaries at every stage of their career; from young professionals and students of all through to those in the most senior positions. The aim of the evening is to bring together all levels of the actuarial movement in a warm and festive atmosphere.
The yearly event is attracting an ever-growing number of professionals and the next one will take place on Saturday 28th March 2009 from 20:00 – 05:00, in the prestigious west Parisian hall: Le Pavillon Dauphine.
The night begins with a cocktail reception for sponsors of the night and their guests from 20:00 to 22:00, followed by an exciting evening with several halls offering different festivities, shows, presentations and animations.
Don’t miss out on the Night of Actuaries and the opportunity to connect with a large part of the actuarial world and promote the image of your company whilst attending a spectacular gala.
This year, Kactu’Z is focusing on the interaction between sponsors and 3rd year actuarial students by means of:
- A mailing list in order to facilitate contact with the actuarial students
- A distinction made between sponsors and students during the cocktail reception.
Sophie Sicard, European consultant, leading GAAPS France, recognises the success and importance of last year’s event:
“It was a perfectly successful evening, both by the choice of the premises as well as the animations, but also by the immense possibility to meet actuaries at all levels. For example, I had the pleasure to exchange a few words with Prof. Carla Angela, president of the Italian Institute of Actuaries, guest of honour for that evening.”
GAAPS Actuarial is proud to be associated with the Parisian event as the only sponsor representing the field of specialised actuarial recruitment. On the night, Sophie will be joined by Lance Randles and Sima Varsani, GAAPS consultants based in London, who will be available to all throughout the night.
