Nominating Honorary Fellows
The IFoA annually seeks nominations for individuals who might be invited to be put forward for election as an Honorary Fellow. They should be individuals who are able to add value to the profession and can have an active and ongoing involvement with the IFoA.
Based on the current bye-laws and subsequent guidance provided by Council, Honorary Fellow nominees should be individuals who:
- "...have achieved distinction in related fields or given significant service to the actuarial profession." (bye-law 37)
- can add value to the profession
- have a direct connection with the profession
- have an ongoing relationship with the profession.
Further to this, proposed Honorary Fellows will also be considered in the extent to which they can support the profession's strategy.
Honorary Fellows have the same voting rights as Fellows but are not subject to a member subscription fee. Honorary Fellows are subject to the Actuaries’ Code, and we would expect them to behave in a way that would not damage the reputation of the IFoA.
All nominations require a proposer and seconder from within the IFoA membership and are usually considered annually by the Policy and Public Affairs Board.
Any queries can be directed to the IFoA's Public Affairs team.

Part of the 'Finance in the Public Interest 2022' webinar series. If it was ever okay to consider your business in isolation from its surroundings, today it most definitely is not. Thinking about business within its surrounding system is now a necessity. The question we seek to discuss is: How should we prescribe the boundaries in which we consider problems to enable us to create better products and more resilient companies and systems?
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.
Investment risk-sharing is a fundamental part of whole-life collective defined contribution (CDC) pension schemes, such as the Royal Mail CDC. But how does investment risk-sharing benefit members? And does it favour some groups of members over others?
