GIRO Papers Now Available

Actuaries conducting research in the general insurance arena now have a new resource at their disposal. Over 400 papers presented at the U.K. Actuarial Profession's General Insurance (GIRO) Conventions over the past 30 years have been digitized and are available online at From this page, mouse-over "Resource centre" then click "General Insurance Convention papers archive" to access the papers.

The archive, which includes papers from 1974 to the present day, is searchable by author, title, and keyword, and the papers may be downloaded completely free of charge.

David Hindley, chair of the General Insurance Board, said: "Publication of this archive on the profession's Web site is an extremely important step. It gives academics, students, insurance professionals, and actuaries free and easy access to a vast corpus of research that will doubtless prove hugely beneficial in the years to come."

The U.K. Actuarial Profession is governed jointly by the Faculty of Actuaries in Edinburgh and the Institute of Actuaries in London.
