The recently re-launched Actuarial Society of Zimbabwe (ASZ) would like to call on all actuaries and actuarial students affiliated to Zimbabwe to register their support and become members of ASZ.
With your participation, they expect significant progress can be made in developing the actuarial mandate within the country up to a level where actuaries will play a pivotal role in the transformation of Zimbabwean financial markets as well as providing input into the development of a sound supervisory framework.
The objectives of ASZ are as follows:
Education of actuaries in Zimbabwe, through part-time teaching by actuaries at the National University of Science and Technology/University of Zimbabwe to enhance credibility and re-establish full exemption status from Actuarial Society of South Africa and Institute and Faculty of Actuaries
Provide tutorial assistance to students writing professional examinations
Further development of the actuarial profession in the traditional fields as well as wider fields within Zimbabwe
Harmonise the standard of actuarial work done in industry for regulatory purposes.
At this stage, there is scope for many foreign-based actuaries to transfer their skills over to Zimbabwe as the market develops.
In the long-term the ASZ aims to have its own local certification. This will start with practice modules for Zimbabwe and finally a curriculum will be developed as has been done by other professionals working in
Please note that participation is on a voluntary basis. For further information contact the following committee members:
