Marketing & Distribution Section


Noon-1:15 p.m. ET


This webcast takes place via the Internet.

Registration Fees

Registration is now closed. The SOA Customer Service Center is available to assist you Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. CDT. Please call +1-888-697-3900.

Who Should Participate

Actuaries interested or involved in new product and/or distribution development.


It is said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. North American life insurers practice this every day as they try to remain competitive. As a result, the focus is often limited to the domestic market. The presenter will explore some of the many innovative product designs and distribution methods that exist outside of North America.

This webcast will provide attendees with a variety of product and distribution ideas and concepts that may be applicable to their companies, regardless of their geographic location.

How the live webcast works and what it includes

You do not need any special equipment. On June 27, 2017, before 2:00 p.m. ET you will be sent detailed webcast instructions via email including the Web address for accessing the presentation. Any handouts that are available will also be sent.  You will follow along with both the slide presentation and the audio portion of the broadcast over the Internet.

The registration fee includes:

  • One access code to the live webcast;
  • One Internet connection;
  • One phone connection (to be used only if experiencing sound issues or if in a conference room with a group)
  • One set of presentation materials; and

Please note that each access code may only be used for  one location , even if you register for more than one participant.
