Public Affairs and Policy

As a Royal Chartered professional body the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA) is committed to serving the public interest by ensuring that, where there is uncertainty of future financial outcomes, actuaries are trusted and sought after for their rigorous, independent analysis

In 2016, the IFoA strategy set out to be bolder in our positions where we have expertise in key debates, to speak out with views, and be heard by policy makers on relevant matters of public interest. Through leveraging our research and professional expertise, we will position the IFoA as a trusted, credible, relevant professional body, commentator and thought leader.

Our approach is to build a proactive engagement programme for key external stakeholders

The IFoA will generate and promulgate a flow of comment and thought leadership that external audiences find accessible and of interest, and express our views where it is in members and the public interest to do so. We will seek opportunities to promote the value of the actuarial skillset and profession to governments, regulators, business, politicians and advisers, special interest groups, think tanks and the media. Internationally, we will offer support to resident actuarial associations in domestic public policy debates.

The IFoA has identified public policy priorities that are most relevant to actuarial science and are in the interests of our members and the public.
