The Actuarial Society of Kenya (TASK) and The Actuarial Association of Uganda (TAAU) held a meeting where they discussed the actuarial professional landscape in the two countries.
The two actuarial bodies also shared possible synergies that can be explored in a move expected to further the growth of the actuarial profession in the East African market.
The Actuarial Society of Kenya was founded in 1993, and officially launched in 2005. It brings together qualified and trainee actuaries in professional, educational and research organisations with an aim of promoting the actuarial profession in Kenya, and the regional markets.
TASK seeks to position the Actuarial Profession in Kenya and the region as the leading profession in the areas of modeling and management of financial risks and contingent events.
The meeting was attended by TASK’s President Moses Mutuli, Sahib Khosla (TASK’s Secretary), Mildred Areeta (TAAU President), Edith Apopo (TAAU Secretary), Ahmed Mabirizi (TAAU Treasurer), and Ernest Barusha (TAAU Public Relations).
The discussions are part of TASK’s CONNECTING focus area; forging of relationships with key stakeholders in order to increase TASK influence with them. The stakeholders include the Society members, actuarial science students, individuals with interest in the actuarial profession, and regulators.
