Genetics & life insurance

I spoke at the Actuaries Summit yesterday. Together with Jessica Chen, a friend of mine who works as an actuary, we presented a paper that summarised the latest genetics research and what impact it might have on the life insurance industry. Our work generated a lot of interest and was even picked up by the Australian Financial Review!

Update (30 Jun 2017): A recording of our talk is now available. Also, yesterday we published an article in Actuaries Digital describing some of the highlights.
