The room at the Broker's Wine Bar looked almost packed when AirSp Member Richard King gave us an introduction to his modelling work. The intricacies of statistics came to life when he briefly explained the basic terms of bell curves, normal distributions, poisson curves, "fat tails" etc. It quickly became clear that Richard's insights into collecting data and how to analyse it were not merely theoretical. Practitioners should be careful when selecting data and presenting results for e.g. Lloyd's Realistic Disaster Scenarios or Solvency II calculations. From "garbage in to garbage out" and applying it with a pinch of salt, Richard made us again a bit more comfortable about discussing statistics and the impact of data modelling on our daily insurance business. Yes, the model might tell you that it happens once every 250 years but (a) this can happen today, and again tomorrow, and the model is still right and (b) your gut feeling might tell you something different. Listen to it.

As the sun set and the air cooled after another gloriously sunny (although rather hot and humid) day at this year’s Rendezvous – at which some serious business discussions mixed with the lighter undertones of social networking had been concluded for the day - the evening began.

In traditional style, the annual AirSP Dinner followed the Principality Cocktail Party. The Quai des Artistes Restaurant, as always, not only lived up to, but surpassed expectations. Members and their guests were treated to fine cuisine, impeccable service and, of course, a glass or two!

The Dinner was again well attended, the company excellent and the atmosphere convivial. A very good time was had by all.
