The U.S. Congress recently passed the most sweeping financial reform measure since the Great Depression. The purpose of this legislation is to prevent the risky behavior and decision-making that led to the financial crisis, and to prevent future crises.

  • Does this legislation solve the problems of the past?
  • Are there other significant issues not addressed?
  • Does this legislation cause other concerns?
  • In reflecting on the events of the last two years, is it possible to effectively develop early warning indicators that trigger intervention in advance of a complete collapse of an entire financial system?
  • Does it make sense to have a chief risk officer of the United States of America, whose role it would be to manage/mitigate this risk?

We invite you to address these questions and other considerations, and we are planning to publish the collection of essays by the end of the year.

Each essay should be no more than two pages (1,500 words or less). Submit your essay via e-mail to Sections@soa.org. If you have any questions, please contact rwolf@soa.org.

The call for essays is sponsored collaboratively by the SOA/CAS/CIA Joint Risk Management Section, the SOA Investment Section, the International Network of Actuaries in Risk Management (IN-ARM) and the Enterprise Risk Management Institute International (ERM-II).
