IOSCO and Tel Aviv 100


Chaim attended the 34th annual conference of the International Organisation of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) in Tel Aviv as a guest of the British Embassy. The conference included an exciting programme of events to take advantage of this year’s celebrations of Tel Aviv’s centennial.

A welcome cocktail on the first night provided the perfect networking opportunity by the sea and with a backdrop of music and A ‘Cultural Mosaic’ in Old Jaffa and tours of Tel Aviv were an excellent showcase of the vibrancy of this exciting city.

The closing event, at the Arca Club in Tel Aviv Port, was a chance for everyone to dance the night away, let their hair down and celebrate the success of the conference.

Shoes, Pensions, Manchester and Leeds

I went to Manchester for a morning of back-to-back meetings with clients and then followed it by catching up on the shopping that we missed in Dublin. At Selfridges I bought a beautiful pair of sandals at half price – adding to my enjoyment. Then back to the hotel to finish packing before catching the train to Leeds for The Actuarial Profession’s 2009 Pensions Conference at which I presented a workshop on “The Future of the Pensions Actuary” and generated a lively debate from the actuaries present.
