International Network of Actuarial Risk Managers
INARM on the Web
INARM is the International Network of Actuarial Risk Managers. It is a very informal group of folks who are interested in learning and sharing ERM practices across borders to enhance the level of actuarial ERM practice in all parts of the globe.
INARM is mainly a virtual group.
1. INARM Listserv
The SOA has provided an email listserv facility. This has been used by the over 280 listserv members to share articles, questions, answers, opinions and program information. Open to all. Sign up at link below.
2. INARM Blog
As an alternative to the Listserv, an INARM Blog has been created. Discussions of Sub Prime, the 2008 ERM Symposium, Fair Value, Limitations to Modeling and Mortgage Lending in Asia have been copied there from the Listserv emails in 2008. You can add your comments there without joining anything. http://riskviews.wordpress.com/
3. INARM Emerging Risks
In January 2008, INARM helped to create the Global ERM Best Practices for Insurers and Reinsurers webinar. This program ran for 16 hours and drew an audience of 1600 people from 47 countries. One of the programs was on the topic of Emerging Risks. Materials from that program plus new sources on the topic have been made available in an open platform that allows users to add more materials as they see fit. This is accomplished with a Google Group called INARM Emerging Risks. Anyone can make comments. To add significant postings, you need to join the group. Instructions are there on the website.
4. INARM LinkedIn Group
While the listserv is not anonymous, it does not provide for members to easily learn each other’s identities. LinkedIn is a professional networking website that allows the formation of special groups. We have formed an INARM group. As of this writing, the INARM group on LinkedIn has over 80 members from more than 15 countries. To use this facility, you must join LinkedIn. There is a level of service on LinkedIn that is free and that you may find to be sufficient to make connections with other INARM members if you are interested in that.
