About cross practice work

Cross practice work is essential for your career development as an actuary

In a changing environment cross practice awareness is fundamentally important for all actuaries, regardless of discipline. Cross practice awareness will strengthen your knowledge of related practice areas and by getting involved in cross practice activity you will expand your networking opportunities and career options.

Cross practice work helps the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA) influence regulators and policy makers in the public interest

Policy makers and regulators are changing the way we work as a profession and encouraging the development of non-traditional roles. Increasingly, the IFoA is engaging with regulators and policy makers from a cross practice perspective for the public interest. 

There are currently fourteen cross practice research working parties.

Members interested in volunteering for a research working party should check Volunteer Vacancies for current and new working parties.
