Actuarial Post: Earning trust on social media

Actuarial Post: Earning trust on social media This article was originally commissioned for Inner Workings, a monthly column written by Tom Murray, in the  April 2018 edition of the Actuarial Post.   The outright abuse of personal data epitomised in the recent scandals, concerning elections in the Western world, has shown that there are severe limits to the level of controls that you can put on your information once you have submitted it voluntarily online.

Eye, Robot! This article was originally commissioned for Inner Workings, a monthly column written by Tom Murray, in the  March 2018 edition of the Actuarial Post.   It may be a staple of Hollywood movies, such as Judge Dredd or Minority Report, to use retina-scanning to make the point that the movie is set in the future or to engender fear in horror movies by having the bad guys remove eyes to get access to retina-scan locked buildings, but reality is catching up as biometrics are moving mainstream in many industries in order to control access to particular sections of the building or to monitor hours worked.  The question is whether it adds any value to the life and pensions sector or whether we should consider it as a fad that will fade without us spending the time and money to get involved.

Life and pensions set for a good year in 2016 The last few years have been difficult for all of us working in the financial services sector.

Pensions UK guidance average cost of IFA Life and Pensions

Pension Wise - Paying more for less When George Osborne stood up and accidentally announced that there would be advice given free to all when they reached retirement, so that people would be educated in how to make the most of their new pension freedoms, the Treasury spin doctors leapt into action to clarify the statement.
