Our strategy

In September 2020 we set out our updated strategy for the next five years.

As the actuarial profession evolves, we want to ensure that the IFoA remains at the forefront of the curve: broadening our relevance, helping to shape the profession’s future, and attracting new talent, while still ensuring that the profession remains a rewarding one for existing members.

Our strategy is ambitious, robust and well-thought through, and will stand us in good stead to meet the challenges of the next five years.

Building on our strategy set out in 2016 we have sharpened our focus on three key priorities:

  • Ensuring a deep understanding of what is important to our current and future members
  • Supporting IFoA actuaries in adapting to change in existing sectors as well as moving into wider fields, specifically through a focus on developing skills and sectoral participation
  • Strengthening partnerships with a variety of stakeholders to enhance the reputation and influence of the profession worldwide.
