Sun Life Financial Asia (Sun Life) and the University of Waterloo have reached an agreement to partner on building critical actuarial and risk capacity in Indonesia. As part of Sun Life’s commitment to Indonesia, Sun Life will donate CAD $500,000 to establish a Fellowship in International Actuarial Science, to be launched by University of Waterloo in 2016 with the goal of contributing to the development of the actuarial sciences field in Indonesia.
The Fellowship will primarily focus on an actuarial science and risk management development project in Indonesia called READI (Risk Management, Economic Sustainability and Actuarial Science Development in Indonesia) that University of Waterloo is currently implementing with the Government of Canada and other partners. The project’s main goal is to establish Indonesia as a regional center of actuarial excellence in Southeast Asia by engaging education, government and industry.
