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.

In this webinar, we will discuss how cause-of-death data from the Office for National Statistics can help us to understand how inequalities arise at the all-cause level. The key to understanding mortality inequality is to think about the chain that connects risk factors, relative risks, and cause-of-death mortality through to all-cause mortality.
The importance of biodiversity for finance, business and policy is being increasingly recognised. While many studies highlight the overall economic impact that biodiversity loss could have, it is much more difficult to quantify and understand the particular impact that is may have on individual businesses or communities. The management and measurement of these risks is a field where actuaries are well placed to contribute.
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.
