MatBlas is the only company in the UK and Europe providing independent actuarial and technical training and seminars to insurance professionals.

Our workshops and seminars are for most delegates an eye opener. During our courses, delegates realise that concepts they believed to be “difficult” and of exclusive understanding to the small community of actuaries, are actually very easy and very intuitive to understand. In our courses we do not focus on attempting to explain complicated formulae, we focus on the rationale and intuition behind the formula and how it applies to specific situations.

Our workshops and seminars are 100% independent of our consulting services. Delegates are able to implement the learned concepts in the workplace by themselves and without any special (proprietary) software. The training material is very comprehensive.

Since our first course in 2008 we train an average of 200 delegates every year between our public courses and in-house bespoke training courses. Delegate come from a wide range of disciplines including actuaries, underwriters, finance professionals, legal and compliance, risk managers and IT professionals with levels of experience ranging from a few days to several years in the insurance market.

Our courses have been designed based on our hands on experience in the insurance market implementing these concepts. Our courses provide both the necessary theoretical framework and practical advice to overcome the limitations faced in real life. Our participants are able to apply the concepts learned through a series of hands-on case studies and they retained solved templates for future references.

We offer both bespoke and public attendance courses.

Bespoke Courses
Depending on clients' training needs we design courses in a wide range of topics including but not limited to insurance rating, rating plans and benchmarking, reserving, reinsurance and portfolio management.

Often we tailor the content to match delegates’ internal jargon and workflows.

For more information on bespoke seminars please contact us.

References and testimonials on bespoke courses are available upon request.

Public Courses
We design our public seminars with a broad audience in mind. We aim for our courses to be as self-contained as possible, occasionally requiring prior course work and reading. We run a number of seminars and workshops and everyone working in insurance will find at least one that is suitable for their level of experience and training requirements. Before you register, find out more on our on-line brochure to find the course that best suits your needs or contact us for guidance.
