Mutual recognition

A mutual recognition agreement is a reciprocal agreement between the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA) and another actuarial body which recognises each other’s professional qualifications

You must read the agreement relevant to the country where you qualified to ensure you meet the criteria.

We have mutual recognition agreements with the following associations:

If you are not eligible for mutual recognition you could join the IFoA as a student and study to become an Associate or Fellow of the IFoA

As a student member you might be eligible for exemptions from some of our exams. Please contact to find out more.

Please check the application form and ensure you have included all relevant documents.  You can send us digital copies of your signed application form and relevant documents.
