Solvency in Edinburgh

My last week was spent in Edinburgh for GIRO, I have been discussing with many candidates and clients the on-going needs of Solvency II. Most interesting in regards to new needs and of course on-going needs within Solvency II and other teams within the non-life parts of the business.

The Beer Gardens

Magical Munich

The journey from Munich Airport to the LIFE / AFIR conference was further than I had expected but was a journey through a magical green landscape and I now understand where childhood fairy-tales come from.

The conference itself is excellent and for the first time ever I have understood how Swiss pensions work – a great tribute to the presenter of that session.

In the evening, the social event was a visit to a beer garden. I was very trepiditious and even managed to miss the coach that had been arranged so I ended up walking. Again it was like a scene out of ‘The Student Prince’ (the operetta).

Very worthwhile!  Very well organised!

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.
