Actuaries Annual Lecture, Staples Inn

Tuesday 17th November 2015

The Worshipful Company of Actuaries held their annual lecture at their home in Staple Inn a Tudor building on High Holborn where the wool was once weighed and taxed. The Inn was one of the medieval inns of Chancery now no more. But the hall is preserved and is of great historic importance. David Willets gave the lecture which was on the subject of the Baby Boomers and their Pensions. I just fall outside the Baby Boomer generation being a war-time baby, but I probably fall under the same fortunate circumstances of full employment and corporate pension schemes which are the envy of todays working generation. I cannot claim to have understood many of the slides put up by the speaker intended as they were for an audience of actuaries but it was a thought provoking lecture and very enjoyable as was the supper afterwards. Many thanks to the Actuaries for their generous hospitality.
