Affiliate membership

IFoA Affiliate membership is for professionals who share an affinity with the actuarial profession, or who work alongside actuaries, and offers access to industry research reports, networking opportunities and online learning on the domains, analytics methodologies and the soft skills which are the core of the actuarial profession.

It is a membership category for those not in paid work as an actuary or which relies upon their actuarial training and experience, or on their membership of the IFoA.

Affiliate membership makes you part of a global community of professionals and provides the opportunity to reach across disciplinary boundaries, to benefit from and to contribute to a member-led programme of outputs, and to associate yourself with an organisation and a profession with a long-established record of credibility.
 

Being an IFoA Affiliate has allowed me to get involved with work at the cutting edge of where data science intersects with the actuarial profession. It enables me to hone my skills, meet data professionals and demonstrates my commitment to the standards of UK professional practice. It is realising the potential of crossing disciplinary boundaries, for my career and for my industry, and has created real commercial opportunities for me.
