Respecting confidentiality

When appointed to take on a role or task for the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA) we ask you to respect confidentiality in all you do

By the very nature of your role (whether you are an individual who supports the IFoA as a volunteer (member or non member), or in any other role), you will have access to information and material which is confidential.

Your respect for the confidential nature of this information and material, and the fact that it has been shared with you, is important to protect the integrity of the IFoA

We ask that you keep this at the forefront of your mind when carrying out your role/task, ensuring that all confidential material and information is treated with the upmost care.  Those of you who are our members will be aware of their obligations of confidentiality under the Actuaries' Code.

It may be that we will require some volunteers and those undertaking paid roles to enter into a more formal confidentiality agreement as and where appropriate

Your IFoA Executive contact or Chair (if applicable) will raise any additional requirements with you if necessary and indeed if you have any queries, or are in any doubt about whether something is confidential, please refer the question to them.

If you have enquiries about volunteering please contact the Engagement team

The Engagement team will respond to your email within three working days and often sooner.

    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.
