For the past three days, I have been in London meeting with my actuarial colleagues from MGAC – the Multinational Group of Actuaries and Consultants. MGAC has more than a 20-year history of working together on cross-border exercises. NetActuary is the Australian member firm in a group that now has more than 6,000 employees and offices in 30 plus countries. Member firms provide advice to over half of the FTSE Global 100 companies.
If your firm needs assistance with issues that span more than one country, we can help. This may be an expansion to a country such as Singapore. It could be an M & A with
a French firm or an executive joining you from Brazil or Canada. You might want to know how the German GAAP is different to IAS19, or what are the latest developments in UK pension regulations.
The London meeting left me with the realization that the rest of the world has not been addressing the transition from defined benefit to defined contribution as actively as Australian firms. Having an MGAC global responsibility actuary to co-ordinate the local actuarial function can greatly speed up and enhance any de-risking objectives.
Whilst we have an international full-time secretariat to facilitate multi country exercises, in the first instance please contact Brian on (03) 6223 2320 or by email email@example.com.
