The project involved three distinct strands, all of which exploit recently available data from large-scale household surveys to contribute to a greater understanding of the future prospects for retirement resources in Britain:
- The evolution of wealth and financial behaviour in Britain since 2006
- Differences in economic circumstances across successive cohorts
- Simulating the future distribution of incomes, and income-poverty, among older people

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. As a global profession, the actuarial community is well-placed to consider and propose effective risk management solutions to help manage the climate crisis.

Raising our own awareness and understanding of the issues can help us avoid the pitfalls of unconscious bias in particular. We’ve all heard the phrase ‘office banter’ but are we sure that’s how those on the receiving end perceive it and is it ok to go along with it?
