The Actuaries' Code Principle 1 - Integrity

Principle 1 - Integrity

1. Members must act honestly and with integrity.

1.1 Members must show respect for others in the way they conduct themselves.

1.2 Members should respect confidentiality.

Members of the IFoA are expected both by the profession and the wider community to demonstrate high standards of behaviour. This means acting honestly and with integrity at all times. Behaviour out with a Member’s professional life can also have a bearing on the profession and the principle therefore applies to a Member’s personal life too.
