75 Years – The Actuarial Profession in India has witnessed 75 years and in that spirit the GCA would have flavor of the grandeur and admiration of the Indian Actuarial Profession on reaching the Platinum Jubilee milestone.
International presence– over the last one year, IAI has made significant efforts to re-establish strong ties with other actuarial professional bodies across globe e.g. IAA, IFoA, SOA, ASSA, AAC etc. On completion of 75 years of Actuarial Profession in India, the International Actuarial Association (IAA) honored the President, IAI in Asian Actuarial Congress (AAC) held at Singapore. A plaque was handed over to the President, IAA to commemorate the occasion.
International delegates- A large number of international delegate shall witness the proud occasion of completion of 75 years and also be part of the 2020 AGFA.
The GCA has been organized since 1999 and is a major event attracting stakeholders in the Insurance and financial sectors including actuaries and non-actuaries, both as speakers and participants. The event has taken a completely different scale by reaching out to global audience in more ways than one. This has to be seen in the backdrop of India being an attractive destination for global actuarial services delivery – one thousand plus actuarial resources work on actuarial deliverables that originate from countries other than India. This is aside from the fact that of the insurers in India are joint ventures between domestic and global players and additionally there is a strong representation of global players in both the consulting and reinsurance spheres. The 21st GCA continues to move further in terms of the subjects being debated and the speakers participating.
We invite you to participate in the 21st GCA as well as AGFA 2020 and the overseas delegates may also enjoy the beauty of other parts in India, as the weather would be suitable for trips and excursions.
The Venue: Renaissance Mumbai Convention Centre Hotel in Mumbai is a luxury hotel, nestled on the banks of Powai Lake and is located within close proximity to the Mumbai domestic and international airports.
