  • Vice-President, Corporate Actuarial – Great-West LifeCo Inc. – London, ON; Winnipeg, MB; Toronto, ON


    Vice-President, Corporate Actuarial
    Based in London, Winnipeg or Toronto

     

    Corporate Actuarial:

     

    The Corporate Actuarial Team plays a central role in actuarial oversight for Great-West Lifeco.  The team leads the oversight of the valuation of insurance contract liabilities, and supporting processes, across Great-West Lifeco’s operations, as well as the analysis of the robustness of the Company’s financial condition through the DCAT process. The team supports the Appointed Actuary in exercising oversight on the operation of participating policies and adjustable policies, and in preparing the annual opinions on fairness as required under the Insurance Companies Act in Canada.

     

    The team is split between the London and Winnipeg locations.  The team in London leads the internal and coordinates the external peer review process – one of the pillars in actuarial oversight – as well as preparation of the Appointed Actuary Report annually.  The team in Winnipeg leads the quarterly and annual reporting of insurance contract liabilities within the financial reporting process, as well as the supporting regulatory reporting.  The DCAT process is supported by members of both the London and Winnipeg teams.

     

    The Corporate Actuarial Team’s work continuously evolves, in response to advances in actuarial techniques, new actuarial standards and guidance, developments in Great-West Lifeco’s insurance business and advances in technology.  There is heightened change in Corporate Actuarial over coming years as the Company prepares for the introduction of the new insurance accounting standard (IFRS 17) in 2022.

     

    IFRS 17 represents a major change in the valuation of insurance liabilities of life insurers, which will impact earnings emergence and volatility.  IFRS 17 will also introduce a new presentation of insurance results, and supporting disclosures, in the financial statements, which will necessitate significant change within actuarial and accounting systems and processes.

     

    The implementation of IFRS 17 is a demanding program in terms of scale and complexity. The program requires strong support from Corporate Actuarial for policy development and financial modelling, oversight of model development for IFRS 17, and the analysis of business impacts of IFRS 17.  The Corporate Actuarial team also needs to provide leadership on the changes required to actuarial systems and processes to ensure that the actuarial teams are prepared for the reporting changes being introduced by IFRS 17, including the additional granularity required by the standard.

     

    Two exciting new leadership positions is now available to lead the Corporate Actuarial Teams through their agenda, including the transition of IFRS 17.  The role discussed here is the VP, Corporate Actuarial, reporting to the SVP & Appointed Actuary.

      • Leads the development of financial modelling on IFRS 17 across Great-West Lifeco
      • Supports the interaction with external stakeholders and industry groups on matters relating to the implementation of IFRS 17
      • Monitors and contributes to the development of actuarial standards, guidelines and educational notes within the profession

      • Ensures consistency of approach across lines-of-business where relevant
      • Monitors and contributes to the development of actuarial standards, guidelines and educational notes within the profession

      • Maintains GWL guidelines on the determination of policy liabilities & related policies/guidelines

       

    3. Provides second line-of-defense oversight on the Participating Funds and Adjustable Policies, including support for the Appointed Actuary in annual opinions on fairness

      • Supports the Appointed Actuary in reporting on the fairness to participating policyholders of the dividend policy and proposed dividends

      • Leads the annual review of other participating fund and adjustable policies
      • Provides an actuarial second line-of-defense review on key initiatives impacting the participating funds (e.g. product design)
