In this blog, we speak to Chloe Hung about her book on breaking into the actuarial industry called 'Strength in Numbers', and find out a bit more about what inspired her this World Book Day.
Can you tell us a bit more about your book ‘Strength in Numbers’?
The IFoA Membership Team are currently carrying out an audit of reduced rate subscription fee paying members for the 2016/2017 membership year.
We undertake an audit of members paying reduced rate subscription fees to ensure that members paying the reduced rate meet the required level of income from all sources, including pension and investment income.
We are introducing a new process for dealing with members experiencing significant health issues, who are facing an allegation under the Disciplinary Scheme.
IFoA Council took the decision to align Curriculum 2019 with the new syllabus announced by the IAA in October 2017.
We have consulted widely on this and there has been significant support for this alignment as it provides qualifiers with the confidence that their qualifications are internationally benchmarked and continue to be transferrable across the globe. The decision by the IAA required us to complete a final review of the IFoA’s new curriculum late in 2017 to ensure our full compliance.
In this blog, Marjorie Ngwenya, President, Institute and Faculty of Actuaries, discusses the importance of meeting actuarial professionals in India and our Council meeting at the 19th Global Conference of Actuaries meeting in Mumbai.
Following consultation with the relevant Boards, it has been agreed that separating the Pensions and Risk Investment conference into two individual events will allow for greater focus on each area’s topics thereby delivering a full and topical one-day conference programme fully dedicated to your sector. A pre-conference dinner the previous evening will allow for greater networking opportunities with peers and colleagues in your field.
In this blog, Debbie Atkins, IFoA's Head of Engagement, talks about volunteering.
Take part in the forthcoming Volunteer Survey and help shape the volunteering experience at the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries.
Volunteers, past and present, are at the heart of our profession.
The IFoA congratulates everyone listed below on their new status as Fellows, Associates and Chartered Enterprise Risk Actuaries. To recognise your success your names have been published in today’s copy of The Times newspaper. Well done; we look forward to hearing more from you during your career and as you help to shape the future of the actuarial profession.
The IFoA ensures the professionalism of our members remains world-class and is reflected in the value that is attributed to their expertise.
The IFoA is aligning its new curriculum to the agreed International Actuarial Association standard.
Owing to syllabus changes approved by the International Actuarial Association (IAA) in October 2017, it is necessary to consider the relevance of the Business Awareness module, CT9, to the IFoA’s new syllabus. This will consequently impact the CB3 exam, which is due to replace CT9 in the new curriculum.
We have therefore decided to suspend all current and future CT9 examinations.
We hope to communicate the final decision on CT9 to you by the end of January 2018.
The IFoA has made every effort to ensure our website is able to cope with traffic ahead of the publication of pass lists on December 21. However if any student does have difficulties, we are also going to publish pass lists on a webpage outside of the IFoA website.
