IFoA Foundation

The IFoA Foundation

The IFoA Foundation is a recently formed charity that is an amalgamation of the profession's previous charities.

We are raising funds to support our community and to achieve our mission of 'Actuaries supporting others'. Our vision is to open every door for the next generation of actuaries and to empower the profession to be transformative in addressing the greatest challenges of our time.

I am delighted to support the Foundation during my year as President, and to do my part at this poignant moment and against the backdrop of an extraordinary and unprecedented year. We have a real focus on supporting the actuarial profession, both in the UK and overseas, and can bring so much good from this initiative.

Tan Suee Chieh, President of the IFoA 2020-21 and Founding Patron of the IFoA Foundation

We have three objectives

Rewarding excellence

Providing recognition, prizes, and awards for excellence in actuarial examinations and academic research.

Supporting our community

Giving financial support to university students, those studying the actuarial examinations and others in financial hardship, from all backgrounds and across the globe.

Addressing future challenges

Working with the IFoA and our partners and stakeholders to unlock solutions to the most critical global priorities, from pandemics and climate change to financial education.

I am extremely excited to launch the IFoA Foundation. The trustees and I are delighted to work with the actuarial profession to support others and make an impact to our community and to the profession as a whole.

Kartina Tahir Thomson, Chair of Trustees
