Research in the finance and investment area
There are two types of research the Profession is involved in:
- External research (research undertaken by universities and other external agencies which receives funding and/or support from the Profession)
- Member-led research (volunteer research working parties established by members and overseen by the practice executive committees)
Information on External research (including the Profession’s strategy for involvement, the process for calls for research and current research initiatives) can be found on the Research pages.
Information on Member-led research (including how to establish a new working party and processes and options for carrying research forward) is available in the Profession’s Guidance for new research working parties.
Cross practice research is encouraged and the Profession has a cross practice research committee which regularly reviews the research activity in all practice areas to link those which have a common discussion area.
Research in other key associations (eg SOA, CAS, ASSA and the Institute of Actuaries Australia) provides opportunities to collaborate.
