Annual report: 2020/2021

Our members, our focus

Listening to our members, and focusing on what they told us was important to them, has been central to our work over the last year. The pandemic sped up much of what we already had planned, such as the digitisation of our exams and events offering. But we also went beyond that. In this year’s annual report you can read about our new strategy and VSMD agenda, the development of our propositions, our new learning change programme, the work the actuarial profession has done to support the fight against the pandemic – and much more. But at the core of all our work is our commitment to listening to our members and keeping them at the heart of everything that we do.

2020 was an unprecedented year. Above all, we want to express our thanks to our members, volunteers, employees and colleagues for the effort and energy they dedicated to the IFoA, and one another, during such an historic moment in all our lives.

Events calendar

  • Spaces available

    A panel discussion with investment representatives discussing the impact of investment on climate change and vice versa.

    This event is part of The Road to Glasgow: IFoA’s Sustainability Thought Leadership Series which will provide a platform for prominent contributors so that our members and others can understand the perspectives of a wide range of parties interested in the climate debate.

  • Spaces available

    Climate change is one of the greatest risks facing our world today. Addressing it will require multi-faceted solutions. Through this panel session, we will explore the different levers that can be used to meet net-zero targets including climate science and data, government engagement, and mobilising green finance.

  • Spaces available

    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.

  • The Growth Mindset for Actuaries

    13 October 2021 - 8 December 2021

    Spaces available

    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.

  • Spaces available

    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.
