Arif Asnawi Leong has completed the IFoA examinations to qualify as an Associate member, becoming Brunei's first qualified IFoA member and actuary.
Leong heads up the actuarial division of Insurans Islam TAIB, a leading provider of takaful (Islamic insurance) products.
This is a significant step for Brunei, as strong actuarial skills will enable the country to meet the goals and objectives set out in its long-term development plan, the Brunei Vision 2035.
This will help reduce the country's reliance on actuarial consultants from other countries, as well as furthering the growth and sustainability of Brunei's financial system.
Nicholas Yeo, practice leader of [email protected], a South-East Asian professional actuarial education and training provider, said: "Arif's achievement is unparalleled in the country of Brunei. He is extremely dedicated and truly passionate about becoming an actuary. His pioneering work will become an example for young Bruneians to succeed in the actuarial profession."
