Welcoming our new chairperson, Giampaolo Crenca

25 October 2023

Giampaolo Crenca

Chairperson AAE


After a term as Vice-Chairperson, Giampaolo Crenca has now been appointed Chairperson of the AAE, with Inga Helmane stepping into the role of Vice-Chairperson. In his first address to the General Assembly, the new Chairperson promised continuity alongside evolution, outlined a 3-year strategic plan and spoke about how an actuary is like an artist.

Giampaolo Crenca lives and works in Italy, where he has been deeply involved with multiple national actuarial organisations over many years. During his 30-year career he has been a valued consultant actuary, lectured at universities on the subject of actuarial and financial mathematics, and authored a number of books and articles, as well as gaining a PhD in Actuarial Science. More recently he has actively taken up various roles in AAE, including as Membre Titulaire, a member of the editorial board of The European Actuary and of the Communication Panel, and seats on a number of task forces – so while his qualifications are clear, one may need to read between the lines to understand that he is also a truly passionate advocate for the profession.

The times have changed: with growing understanding of the climate emergency and its far-reaching consequences, stakeholders on all sides are insisting sustainability is tangibly integrated across the full spectrum of products and businesses. In the insurance sector this is evident as a general expectation – now held by investors, policyholders, regulators and employees – that companies will make a clear transformation and become providers of sustainable solutions.

AAE Chairperson


Open those diaries and calendar apps: European Actuarial Day is returning – and you are all invited to take part, free of charge!


The first European Actuarial Day was conceived in 2021 as a virtual conference to fill the gap left by the postponed European Congress of Actuaries. The event was a great success, featuring contributions from 40 speakers from all walks of the profession and ultimately reached an audience of more than 250 participants. So we have decided it’s time to bring it back – and with 600 people already registered to attend this time, it’s set to be even better.

AAE Board member

In its role representing its professional actuarial members, a key function of the Actuarial Association of Europe (AAE) is maintaining meaningful and productive dialogue with leading participants and European agencies handling policies relevant to our field.


The AAE is regularly in contact with the most influential stakeholders, and we have been able to come to the table for meetings with Insurance Europe, the European Insurance & Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA) and the European Commission’s DG FISMA. We are optimistic that our recent input is already making a meaningful impact, specifically in terms of climate matters and the review of Solvency II.
