6th Annual Product Development Actuary Symposium in…Vegas!

Join us in Las Vegas for the 6th Annual Product Development Actuary Symposium. This year's symposium will take place on June 26-27, 2006 at the Hyatt Lake Las Vegas Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The Marketing and Distribution Section is once again partnering with the Product Development, Reinsurance, and Actuary of the Future Sections to present a program that builds on the recent popularity of this symposium. The presenters and facilitators include industry experts and guest speakers. Mark your calendar to join us next June!

The Symposium will be a day and a half, followed by post-symposium seminars. An optional golf event is being considered for symposium attendees on the day before the symposium begins. The opening session of the symposium will feature executives in insurance companies and/or marketing organizations discussing the current and future state of the life insurance industry. The luncheon speaker on the first day is expected to be an expert from a casino in Las Vegas who will discuss the mathematics behind the casino business.

Both days are filled with concurrent sessions. Most topics will be presented twice, giving attendees maximum opportunity to cover the topics of most interest to them. The sessions are designed to encourage attendee participation and interaction. The following is a list of session topics:

  • Universal Life with Secondary Guarantees
  • Securitizations/Using the Capital Markets
