Council

Council is the governing body of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA). It exercises governance and control over the IFoA and its affairs. Representative and accountable to the IFoA’s members, Council demonstrates leadership and drives the mission, vision and values of the IFoA by setting its strategic direction.

Established under our Royal Charter, Council both reserves to itself and delegates to the Management Board, our Boards, and Committees, and the Chief Executive certain powers.

The role, responsibilities, and procedural rules applying to the business of Council – and the powers which it delegates to others – are set out in the IFoA’s Constitution.
