On 7 April, the IFoA launched the Certified Actuarial Analyst membership qualification (CAA) to candidates and employers around the world. Study material is now available for candidates, who can register on 21 May for the Module 0 exam in August.
As the financial services industry evolves, the needs of employers are also changing. The CAA qualification has been developed through close consultation with employers of actuaries and other financial analysts. It is designed to meet increasing international demand for financial analytical skills, particularly in investment, insurance, pensions and risk management.
In the UK, the qualification has been approved within the government's Trailblazer apprenticeship scheme. This is an employer-led initiative and companies that include Aon, Barnett Waddingham, Grant Thornton, JLT, Mercer, Munich Re and Sun Life of Canada are leading the way in supporting the qualification.
CAA will be fully integrated into our existing global regulatory, examination and membership systems. It will help public confidence by ensuring that those working in analytical and technical roles are doing so in an environment requiring regulatory oversight and continuous professional development.
