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
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.

Internal audit is often the Cinderella of the audit world. It’s a regulatory requirement for insurance companies to have an internal audit function, so why not make it as useful as possible? This session will look at how to link an internal audit plan to the risk register, and how that helps audit committees and boards to spot problems and fix them.
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.
