    More than 60 members attended the successful launch of the IFoA actuarial risk principles framework in June. The framework of 12 principles emphasises key areas to be aware of when putting a risk in context and then describing, measuring and managing it. Although some of these highlight distinctive contributions actuaries can make to risk management – for example in relation to building and interpreting models – many are areas in which other risk professionals also operate. Feedback from the launch suggests that the framework as a whole can be valuable for actuaries and non-actuaries alike. We are now looking to develop the actuarial risk framework over the coming months in two ways: by promoting our existing outputs, for example, in non-actuarial risk publications and by generating material such as new case studies to illustrate the relevance of the framework. This work is being driven by a small group of members, including the Wider Fields Working Party.

    The IFoA has developed a proposal that will have the explicit aim of improving the long-term employability of those who qualify as actuaries through the IFoA. Council now wishes to seek your views on, and test your appetite for, the changes suggested. The central feature of the proposal is a newly titled qualification - the ‘Chartered Actuary’ (CAct). Council wishes to hear your views on this proposal, so we are initiating a consultation which will run until 28 February 2018.  Please visit IFoA Official website for more information.
