New SOA Beijing Office

Beijing officeCraig Reynolds, FSA, MAAA, SOA President

I am proud to announce the establishment of our China office in Beijing. With more than 750 member actuaries in the area, China is an important market for the Society of Actuaries (SOA). We continue to serve a key role in the development of the actuarial profession and the insurance industry in China.

To commemorate the new office, Wesley Cui, the general manager of Willis Towe rs Watson Life Insurance Consulting in China, was the master of ceremony at the opening reception. Speakers at the event included Genghui Wu, chairman of the International Committee of the SOA; Shirley Shao, chairman of the China Committee of the SOA; Jiangang He, deputy director of  China Association of Actuaries (CAA) Health and Life Beijing officedepartment  and mortality investigation office; Ling Ling Wang, deputy chief actuary of Ping An Insurance (Group) of China; Lan Wu, professor at Peking University; and Ann Henstrand, senior director of the International Department at the SOA.

Our connection with China traces back to 1987, when the SOA first partnered with Nankai University to develop a master’s degree program in actuarial science. In 2015, the SOA and CAA signed a memorandum of understanding to further enhance and deepen the cooperation of the two associations. This spring marked the first Executive Training Exchange Program, where CAA representatives met with actuarial employers, organizations and institutions in New York, Connecticut and Washington D.C.Beijing office

We trust that the new office in Beijing will help the SOA enhance its con nection with members, candidates and partners in the region and promote the development of the Chinese actuarial industry through joint efforts with our partners.

I am always interested to hear from members and would appreciate any feedback. You can write to me at or on Twitter @CraigWReynolds. You can also follow my SOA showcase page on LinkedIn.
