Banking MIG management committee

A management committee has been established to set and deliver the MIG's objectives. The committee has identified a number of short term and medium term goals and the main objectives are:

  • Implement a programme of events, articles and presentations to facilitate knowledge sharing, education (CPD) and networking.
  • Understand the extent to which members of the profession are currently involved in banking, or would like to become involved in banking, and to ensure the programme of events meets their needs.
  • Research the extent and way that other actuarial societies support and encourage their members' interests in banking.
  • Encourage members to become involved. Ideas and volunteers for events or working parties will be gratefuly received. If you are keen to get involved then please contact any of the management committee or email
Professional development
  • Build a knowledge base of actuarial techniques used in banking as a means to equip members for work in the banking sector and as a means to promote the profession's skill sets within the banking industry.
Focal point
  • Act as a point of contact for Public Affairs/Policy Managers on banking related consultations.

Vacancies exist for individuals with complementary skill sets and experience. Please email if you would like to take an active part in the Banking MIG.

Members of this MIG have experience in the Banking, Finance and Investment practice area. The groups’ objectives hope to determine how best members in this area can get involved in consultations; share ideas; and feed ideas on content for banking related events to the F&I Education and Continuing Professional Development committee. 

The Banking MIG hopes to create a community of banking actuaries. The ambition would be to transform banking as an activity for actuaries and to achieve this; the MIG has set up several linked work streams:

  • To create an ongoing stream of high quality papers for the actuary magazine and other journals that will also provide ongoing CPD for actuaries in banking. The papers look to cover areas of work where the actuarial skills set have proven valuable, responses to industry and regulatory issues and educating actuaries or bankers. The papers should “sell” actuarial skills and insights to an intended audience of bankers
  • Organise and run social events to enable sharing of ideas and experience
  • Create and maintain a central SharePoint where ideas, papers and contacts are accessible to members
  • Engage with other bodies such as the South African Actuaries who are developing a course or the Chartered Institute of Bankers in the UK.

In addition, the MIG in conjunction with the IFoA hopes to consider how to assist actuaries of the future understand banking in order to make it easier for members to move into banking as a career path.
