Actuarial Association of Europe (AAE)

Our relationship

The Institute and Faculty of Actuaries is a Member Association of the Actuarial Association of Europe (AAE). As a member of the AAE, we work with other European actuarial associations on representing the actuarial profession towards various European institutions.  

The Actuarial Association of Europe

The Actuarial Association of Europe (AAE) was established in 1978 under the name Groupe Consultatif to represent actuarial associations in Europe. The AAE currently has 37 member associations in 35 European countries, representing over 20,000 actuaries.  Advice and comments provided by the AAE on behalf of the European actuarial profession are totally independent of industry interests.

It is the AAE’s purpose to provide advice and opinions to the various organisations of the European Union – the Commission, the Council of Ministers, the European Parliament, EIOPA and their various committees – on actuarial issues in European legislation. The AAE also develops a core syllabus for its member associations and works with them on developing model actuarial standards.

The work of the AAE is driven by its volunteers who represent their associations, actuarial practice area or wider profession in Committees, Working Groups, Sub-Committees and Project Teams.


The AAE is hosting the second European Congress of Actuaries from 21-22 April 2016 in Brussels, Belgium. The Congress’ overall theme is The Actuarial Profession Spreading its Wings and will see discussions on the professional challenges and opportunities in the areas of new technologies, big data and cyber risk, behaviour finance and consumer protection, amongst others.
