CIA Launches New Publication: Seeing Beyond Risk

The first issue of Seeing Beyond Risk, our quarterly electronic publication that will promote actuarial thinking and the profession’s expertise, has now been distributed to politicians, the leading 500 Canadian corporations, government officials, the media, academics, national actuarial and professional associations, and others around the world.

Replacing the CIA’s print magazine as a key method of highlighting members’ foremost position in the field of risk, this publication features contributions from well-known names in actuarial science and experts in the field, writing about topics suggested and honed by the CIA Editorial Panel and/or Institute members.
Our first issue features an article from Fred Vettese, FCIA, FSA: "Fixing Canada’s Retirement ‘Crisis’". It sets out his views on the retirement income system and potential changes. The comments expressed in Seeing Beyond Risk do not claim to represent the opinion of all members of the Institute or the profession as a whole, but instead offer an expert’s opinion and hopefully provide talking points and fresh ideas for non-actuaries. The publication is also designed to encourage people outside the profession to consider the benefits actuaries can bring to their organizations.

We urge members with suggestions for future articles, or those who are willing to write 1,500–1,800 words about important topics of interest to a financially-literate audience, to e-mail the CIA’s English Editor Andrew Melvin at Work has begun on the next issue (due for release in April), but ideas and proposals for future issues will be greatly appreciated
