Consultation: Proposed changes to the Actuaries’ Code

As well as changes to the Actuaries' Code (the Code) itself, the proposals include the introduction of an accompanying Guide to assist Members in understanding their professional and regulatory responsibilities under the Code

The Code applies to all IFoA members and, given its importance in our regulatory framework, we encourage you to read the proposals and provide us with your views.

The deadline for responses is 17 January 2018.

    In this webinar, we will discuss how cause-of-death data from the Office for National Statistics can help us to understand how inequalities arise at the all-cause level.

    The importance of biodiversity for finance, business and policy is being increasingly recognised. While many studies highlight the overall economic impact that biodiversity loss could have, it is much more difficult to quantify and understand the particular impact that is may have on individual businesses or communities. The management and measurement of these risks is a field where actuaries are well placed to contribute.

    The climate crisis and the degradation of our planet will affect societies everywhere. How we address these threats will require solutions that transcend borders.
