Bye-Laws and Rules

Amendment to Bye-laws 8 and 10, and Rules 2 and 4

On 1 November 2021, the Privy Council formally approved the IFoA's request to amend its Bye-laws 8 and 10, which we made in order to provide greater clarity and transparency to the governance arrangements concerning the process by which elected members of the Council are required to 'retire' each year.

These amendments had previously been approved by the Council, and then endorsed by the voting members of the IFoA further to an electronic vote held between Thursday 27 May 2021 and Tuesday 22 June 2021 (with the results having been announced at our Annual General Meeting on Thursday 24 June 2021).

The changes to Bye-laws 8 and 10 took effect immediately upon receipt of the formal approval of the Privy Council. The consequential changes to Rules 2 and 4 (which did not require the approval of Privy Council) have also taken immediate effect.


If you have any queries about these amendments to the Bye-laws and Rules, or any broader queries about the IFoA's constitution, please contact James Harrigan, the IFoA’s Corporate Secretary.

    What will happen to DC pension savers who see life annuities as poor VFM but still want an income for life?  Pooled annuity funds could offer them a decent lifetime income while reducing significantly the complex choices and risk inherent in income drawdown.  They could be the next generation of CDC pension schemes, slotting into the existing DC framework as a post-retirement option.
