Organising Committee

Vivian Tse Vivian Tse (Convenor)

Vivian Tse is a Partner at EY and has more than 15 years of experience in general insurance and injury schemes.  During that time, Vivian has been heavily involved in scheme reviews and change processes in multiple jurisdictions, covering regulatory considerations, premium system design as well as the claims side.  Secretly, she would love to see steps towards a harmonisation of schemes, to the extent it improves outcomes for injured people and the community.

Shikha Bajpai

Shikha is a Senior Actuary at icare, providing advice to the Lifetime Care and Support scheme, the Dust Disease scheme and the CTP Care scheme on a range of financial and operational matters.

She was also involved in accident compensation schemes when working at Allianz and PwC. For a number of years she went off to become a non-actuary and worked in infrastructure and project finance.

When stating her occupation as an actuary at US border control, she was once mistaken for an actress (in LA so it made sense) and another time for an estuary (yes, a geographical formation)…so now she tells people she is an accountant, but she felt safe to disclose her true occupation to attendees of the IDSS.

He has been a member of the organising committee for both the 2019 and 2021 Injury and Disability Scheme Seminars – and can confirm that any doubts the committee had about himself as a speaker, were more than offset by their trust in his co-presenter.
