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. If a total stranger sat beside you on a bus or a train and asked you about your personal musical preferences or which newspaper you liked to read, you would be very wary about supplying the answers.  Not that there is anything particularly top-secret about such information, nor is it very personal, but nevertheless an uneasiness would creep in that the other individual had to be up to no good if they wanted that kind of information.  In other words, you would assume that you were being setup for a sting.

Actuarial Post: Eye, Robot!

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. The hangover from the boom that preceded the global financial crisis of 2008 lasted far longer than originally predicted, and the ‘plink, plink, fizz’ of the austerity cure was slow to work its magic.

Forget robo-advice. Robo-guidance is the answer.

Pensions UK automated guidance guidance pension freedoms

Forget robo-advice. Robo-guidance is the answer. The difficulty of separating out the difference between guidance and advice has caused much anguished discussion in the press ever since the idea of guidance was first mooted after the introduction of pension freedoms.

life and pensions cloud software CIO Cloud costs SaaS Pensions

SaaS in Life and Pensions; Every Cloud… Are you in the Cloud? Or, just lost in the fog? Do you have the nagging feeling that everyone else is there and so should you? These are the questions that bedevil CIOs and CTOs these days. If one reads the trade press, one can easily end up with the impression that everyone, but you, is floating on a high, looking down on the Ryanair flights passing below. In practice, the majority of core application implementations in the life and pensions industry have been on-premise, and are likely to remain that way in the short-term.
