USA Actuarial & Data Science Market Update 2023
“With two-thirds of chief economists expecting a worldwide recession in 2023, the global economy is in a precarious position.”With a slowdown in the economy, “The Great Resignation” has begun to subside. Unsurprisingly, we saw a larger increase in actuaries starting a new position over the past 6-9 months. In addition, we have seen a lot of companies continuing to grow with many more opportunities across the market. With the worldwide recession looming, the market has started to anticipate this, with candidates becoming even more resistant to perceived risk. Hurricane Ian also brought huge losses to a lot of P&C insurance and reinsurance companies, with a large impact across catastrophe modelers. The typical candidate seems to be very concerned about the economy and about the stability of their jobs, which is understandable in such a climate; however, this has also seen candidates wait too long to make a decision – with key clients still hiring. However, there doesn’t seem to be a slowdown in hiring in the P&C actuarial space, and actuaries are still very much in-demand. Following in this report, we will share our thoughts on hiring and market trends, including;Skills-specific hiring trends based on pricing, reserving, CAT modeling, capital modeling and data analytics/scienceMarket trends, including hybrid working, actuarial transformation, and D&I
Eames Insights: The evolving compliance market amidst hybrid working and global developments
Hybrid-working has become a permanent working model for many businesses over the past three years. It enforced firms to adapt quickly and has since changed the way people view their work-life balance. However, there are some mixed opinions on how this approach affects the compliance space. I spoke to five compliance professionals across financial services in Singapore who shared their insights on how the compliance market has evolved over the past three years, given new hybrid working arrangements and global developments.COVID and the rise of hybrid work arrangements have changed the way we think about things. As the financial sector has a global workforce, there is a desire to be able to work back in other jurisdictions. Navigating what is permitted, in terms of having colleagues in a foreign jurisdiction where we are not licensed, and having to ensure our controls are adapted to fit working from home (e.g., rules on communications) are some examples of how this has impacted us. Working from home arrangements require a stronger compliance culture, as the “compliance policeman” is not in the same venue. What I think we have lost, is the ability to walk to someone’s desk to discuss an issue. You feel a bit more restrained when trying to speak to someone working from home and have to message them to see if they are available, and a lot of the energy and spontaneity is lost. Hybrid working gives more flexibility to the workforce, but there is still a strong case for in-person collaboration. -Benjamin Ma, Managing Director, Graticule Asset Management AsiaThe pandemic has changed the way people view work and family priorities. Many now seek out companies that offer hybrid working arrangements as they put more weight on their ability to control their lives and how they live and work. I believe this is a trend that will continue and gets stronger, and a 4-day work week is the next goal for organisations that want to be seen to be progressive and attracts and retains talents. - Managing Director, Group Compliance, Regional BankDepends on the function and location of the function. Most functions have adapted to hybrid work arrangements. However, challenges may exist for new joiners without experience from a training perspective. Adoption of technology appears to be faster. - Regional Financial Crime Director, Anti-Financial Crime certification organisationThe Covid pandemic did demonstrate that, to a large extent, Compliance work could be performed virtually without too much disruption. The hybrid work model is probably here to stay. We have seen a number of firms adopt a hybrid work model to provide some level of flexibility for their employees without disruption to business operations. Nonetheless, a hybrid work model does blur the lines between corporate time and personal space. This is where firms and employees alike have to learn to manage the expectations and needs of the business, implement appropriate controls to safeguard confidential information, and at the same time, be mindful of the mental well-being of their employees. - Regional Compliance Director, International banking and financial services companyAs the world becomes increasingly borderless, Compliance needs to consider related risks, which includes, but not limited to permanent establishment, licensing exposure, online marketing & solicitation, and outsourcing. - Senior Legal & Compliance Director, International Fintech organisationShould you wish to speak further on any of these topics or have a confidential chat about your next career move or business objectives, please don't hesitate to contact me at: email@example.com
