RISKbitz goes to Monte Carlo Day 4

Meg’s Monte Carlo Horoscope

Aries, March 21 – April 20

Some people will think you are too soft-hearted but giving someone a second chance can be a smart tactic for a chief underwriting officer. CEOs, as Mars gets busy in your home chart, a fresh try could get stalled redomiciliation plans moving again. If you are a single actuary, the moon love-matches you with someone who has a more interesting job.

Taurus, April 21 – May 21

Rating agency analysts, your communication chart is strong and the words you say really get through to people. This means you will probably be attacked as soon as you arrive in Monte Carlo. Brokers, a client relationship that has been drifting along could start to fulfil your hopes of increasing contingent commissions. Newly promoted? Leisure will no longer play a key role in your work/work balance.

Gemini, May 22 – June 21

Brokers, the moon gives you a fresh perspective on life and you could find a smarter way to deal with client funds and other shared
responsibilities. Later, love takes over and making decisions together strengthens a partnership but spells disaster for your marriage, business and your health. Female cat modelling expert? Think of a male hurricane name: you could be in for a category 5 romance! Just pray there are no “surge losses” or you could be in for a dry cleaning bill.

Cancer, June 22 – July 22

Braveheart broker, Mars is on your side and the bigger the challenge the better you perform. But don’t forget the new Bribery Act! Trusting your abilities, instead of brown envelopes, is the key. Cedant, knowing you are friends as well as partners deepens a proportional treaty bond. Single? It all starts with a flirty text. And ends with a harassment case and redundancy. Begin a new life as an independent consultant in Cheam.

Leo, July 23 – August 23

Opportunities suddenly appear and move obstacles to success out of your way. Your CEO just had a cardiac arrest. This time you are ready to show what you can do. Your ability to read your line manager’s mind adds a sexy new twist to the relationship. Unfortunately, you don’t have a mortality table fetish. Global CEOs, when you win an industry award it is a pleasant surprise. That massive advertising budget worked its magic after all.

Virgo, August 24 – September 22

Regulators, Mars contacts Jupiter so you can be determined but always generous and fair and plans that you truly care about get moving. Time to revise those Solvency II requirements down. As the moon checks into chief risk officers’ heart chart, a mixture of love, laughter and enterprise risk management shows a relationship has a lot going for it. Let’s hope your wife doesn’t find out. Luck and risk based capital have a music link.

Libra, September 23 – October 23

Chief operating officers, you have an air of self-importance as Mars climbs up towards Uranus. This makes you talk in a funny voice that makes people laugh during your 3Q results presentation to analysts. Fac underwriters, Jupiter focuses on passion and gut feeling plays a stronger role in your rating. Instead of concealing feelings, you share them and end up writing no business this quarter.

Scorpio, October 24 – November 22

Chief information officers, the moon is in your talk chart so you find it easier to have a conversation that has been on your mind. But remember how boring IT is so better keep it to yourself. Structured reinsurance programme designer, you have creative talent – why not prove it by completing what is in effect a finite risk deal with little or no risk transfer? If you are a single actuary, when you meet friends for a drink don’t talk about work.

Sagittarius, November 23 – December 21

Human resource officers, you can think clearly, act decisively and see the difference between being kind and making too many allowances for a board member you care about. You are no longer interested in a love that doesn’t play fair with your feelings – so start a nasty rumour about him. This can transform a relationship or lead to a big D&O claim. Either way it will raise your profile in the firm.

Capricorn, December 22 – January 20

Communications directors, your mentor, Saturn, helps you show how smart and reliable you can be, so why not do some proper work instead of having long lunches with “creatives” in Shoreditch? Construction all risks brokers, the moon swings into your own sign and gives you the right love moves. But remember what happened last time you mooned at the pretty woman in the office across the street. A promise of promotion may have been made before but now you sense that job of servicing clients in Berserkistan is coming your way.

Aquarius, January 21 – February 18

Trade magazine editors, you have the energy, willpower and luck you need to sort out your chaotic life. Why not consider a job change to PR: any idiot can do it and you have always wanted a pension, holidays, health scheme and an iPad. Actuaries, sharing your true thoughts, not just edited highlights, puts new life into a longevity risk ILS deal. Single and obese? You meet where your favourite food is sold and have a shared interest in bariatric surgery.

Pisces, February 19 – March 20

Reinsurer, instead of being swept along by catastrophe events you can make a very smart step-by-step plan to build the cycle management strategy you want.
