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.

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

    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 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.

    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.
