Your voice, our purpose
At the IFoA we are passionate about offering our members the best possible member experience. In the past year we undertook a programme of research to gain a deeper understanding of our members’ experiences so that we could understand more thoroughly what their priorities are, where they felt we could improve, and where they thought we were doing well.
In our 2019/2020 annual report you can read in more detail about the work we did with this feedback and the changes we have implemented.
As we were compiling this annual report, Covid-19 swept across the world. It is too early to say yet what the long-term effects of the pandemic will be but at this stage we want to express our admiration to the actuarial community that has stepped up so ably and willingly at this time to offer assistance to governments, organisations and communities across the world.

How governments and societies collectively respond to the climate crisis is increasingly being analysed through the lens of intergenerational fairness. Our expert panel will assess and explore the extent to which inter-generous fairness is being considered in climate policies, the lessons from those countries who are leading the way on fairness and justice in climate interventions, and more.
This practical course is aimed at actuaries at any stage of their career who want to develop their own growth mindset and apply it to their work setting and personal or professional lifelong learning. The content of the course builds on the lecture given by Dr Helen Wright on Growth Mindset as part of the President’s 2021 Lecture series, and will be delivered over a period of 2 months, from mid-October to early December.
The climate crisis and the degradation of our planet will affect societies everywhere. How we address these threats will require solutions that transcend borders. As a global profession, the actuarial community is well-placed to consider and propose effective risk management solutions to help manage the climate crisis.
Content will be aimed at all actuaries looking to understand the issues surrounding mental health in insurance and in particular those looking to ensure products and processes widen access for, and are most useful to, those experiencing periods of poor mental health.
