The IFoA has published the third bulletin in its series on inclusive insurance (bit.ly/3w0370P). Given the cost of living crisis, much of this edition focuses on insurance’s poverty premium – whereby those who are less well-off end up paying more for essential products and services than those who are better-off.
In April’s edition of The Actuary, IFoA CEO Stephen Mann outlined some of the actions the IFoA had taken to implement its ambitious and far-reaching Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) strategy (bit.ly/DEI_Change_for_better).
Part of the IFoA’s purpose is to enable the profession to make a contribution to solving society’s biggest challenges. To do this, we need to increase our profile and the impact we have on a range of stakeholders.
After a hot summer, we enter September – when many graduates start their new actuarial careers. With articles on hard technical topics and softer careers themes, I hope this issue will give our profession’s newest members a taste of actuarial discourse.
