I would like to take this opportunity to wish all members and friends of the IFoA a very happy Chinese New Year.
Looking forward to the year ahead, I know the rooster is one of the most energetic, optimistic and confident of signs, and in that spirit I hope that we can work together to push actuaries and the IFoA to the forefront of people’s thinking.
