Ø Address by David Cobley, Head of Division – Actuarial, Analytics and Advisory, CBI


We are delighted to welcome David Cobley, the recently appointed Head of Division – Actuarial, Analytics and Advisory within the Insurance Directorate of the Central Bank of Ireland.  A qualified actuary by profession, David has had a broad career across the insurance industry in Europe, most recently as Chief Actuary for the UK's Exeter Friendly Society.  Previously David's roles included Commercial Director of Simplyhealth and Risk Director of the International Financial Services business of Lloyds Banking Group.


David will discuss a number of areas including the role of analytics in the Central Bank, culture in firms and the increasing importance of stress and scenario testing. 


After the conclusion of this session, and in line with our usual format, we intend to dedicate some time to discuss topics that any of the CROs present may wish to raise and discuss, including any issues arising from the discussion with David. This is intended to ensure that CROs have an opportunity to raise developing issues where some quick feedback from peers would be welcomed.  We would invite CROs to submit topics in advance of the meeting.  However, please feel free to simply raise them on the day of the meeting itself.


The CRO Forum is designed to be a high-level discussion group exclusively formed and attended by Chief Risk Officers of Insurance Ireland Member and Associate Member companies. The purpose of the series is to engender debate and discussion, facilitating peer learning, network building and the sharing of experience and knowledge in this community.

The nature of future events falling under this series will be informed by your inputs and feedback, to ensure the series continually delivers value to the network it is designed to engage.

To register please email before Friday, 10th February, 2017.



This Insurance Ireland Event is open to Insurance Ireland members only or by invitation from our CEO.
