Editor biography

Tigran Kalberer and Kannoo Ravindran

Tigran Kalberer has pioneered the application of market-consistent valuation techniques in life insurance during the last 20 years. He has applied risk management and notably ALM techniques for life insurance companies in a wide variety of situations. Having previously been at KPMG, Tigran is currently Principal and Consulting Actuary at Milliman.

Kannoo Ravindran (Ravi). Since pioneering the use of derivatives to manage market risks embedded in variable annuities at a time when writers of such risks used only traditional reinsurance/retrocession or took on the risks naked, Ravi has been working on all aspects of variable annuity risk-management (including managing such risks on a total account value exceeding USD 100 billion) and product development. Ravi is currently President and CEO of Annuity Systems.
