What is the LSE Actuarial Conference?
The LSE Actuarial Conference is the flagship event of the LSESU Actuarial Society and is the largest student-run actuarial conference in the United Kingdom. Each year, the LSE Actuarial Conference convenes the brightest students from leading universities in the UK and distinguished professionals to deliberate the latest trends, issues and ideas in insurance, finance, technology, and other actuarial related fields. The conference also serves as a platform for our sponsors to meet and network with our diverse pool of delegates. In 2020, the conference had to be held online due to the pandemic. On the bright side, it provided participants from outside the UK a rare opportunity to join the conference.
What's the theme for the LSE Actuarial Conference 2021?
The theme for this year is “Stepping Into Tomorrow”, where we aim to raise commercial awareness among members about the gradual digitalisation of the actuarial profession, and at the same time educate our global audience regarding potential roles in non-traditional fields and how to excel in these roles ultimately.
