NEW FutureRisk.org Web Site Live
Register now at SOA’s innovative research Web site to be eligible to take part in surveys on issues and trends. Association DataZone and the Society of Actuaries (SOA) invite you to become part of the FutureRisk.org community. Here, you will be able to share your thoughts as part of a community of actuaries and others interested in the modeling and management of financial risk and contingent events and will provide the Society of Actuaries with valuable insight and direction.
Through your participation, you will help identify and develop new products and services, provide insight into significant industry and societal trends and issues; and help shape SOA policies and decisions. Your input makes a difference—and it's free!
Who Qualifies to Participate in FutureRisk.org?
A broad cross-section of individuals interested in financial risk and contingent events, such as actuaries, other risk management professionals, employers, human resource professionals, academics, government regulators and others are welcome to join.
How FutureRisk.org Works
We simply ask that you complete a brief profile about yourself. Then from time to time, the Society of Actuaries will invite your participation in research studies that will allow you to express your opinions and share your experiences. Your responses will be pooled with the responses of other FutureRisk.org members and become part of a knowledge base that informs and guides the activities of the SOA and its members. Your privacy and confidentiality are guaranteed and responses are only reported in the aggregate. Your individual identity or individual responses are not available to the SOA.
What are the Benefits of Participating?
As a participant of FutureRisk.org, you will receive abstracts of results from research in which you participate. Additionally, you'll help track the professions' influence, compensation levels, overall market strength and other employment issues over time, allowing you to obtain professional benchmarks. And you'll be one of the first to learn about new products and services and to share opinions on emerging ideas and trends.
Bottom line: It's your opportunity to let us hear from you on a wide range of issues impacting the profession. And if you choose to receive information about and participate in surveys from selected companies that serve the actuarial profession, you can also earn honorariums.
What About Privacy?
