Phiatus Club

The name of the Phiatus Club is believed to be a clever joining of FIA and "hiatus"” to indicate that it was a club for Fellows whose actuarial careers had been interrupted by the war

From its early days the Club welcomed lady as well as gentlemen members. Nowadays the club is open to all Fellows who wish to be able to meet socially with other actuaries for an informal dinner and conversation up to six times a year at a City restaurant, after Institute Sessional meetings.

The Club normally meets at Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese in Fleet Street, which was rebuilt in 1667 and offers ale at probably the lowest price in London; the Club's dinner fee is presently £27.50

The Club also has a Guest Night on a Friday in May in the country – recently in Chenies, Buckinghamshire – where members bring their partners and it is a tradition to have an invited guest speaker, including the Institute and Faculty President.

The Club welcomes new members.
