Join the Risk Management Practice Area

Lights

Risk Management is one of the most dynamic and fast-growing areas of actuarial science. Risk Management focuses upon considering the risks of the enterprise as a whole, rather than considering individual risks in isolation.

The goal of the Risk Management Practice Area is for the profession to use a risk management approach to expand its horizon of activity to meet the needs of the wider business world; as well as the demand of the profession’s growing global membership for stimulating and rewarding jobs.

We’re open to all IFoA members, from those looking to get started in risk management to those looking to take the next step in their career with our recognised CERA qualification.
