  • Derek Cribb Charting a courseThe IFoA's strategy was published in June 2016. The refresh reflected five years of global, industrial, political and economic change, and reset the future direction of the organisation.

  • Marjorie Ngwenya Fighting for a fair futureAmong the aims of this year's International Women's Day, which falls on 8 March 2018, is a call to action for accelerating gender parity.
  • Marjorie Ngwenya Inspiring aspirationsThe end of one year and the start of another is a time when many of us reflect on what we have achieved and what we've still not checked off the list of the previous year's aspirations. It is only when we look back that we truly appreciate how much we have accomplished and experienced in the year.
  • Derek Cribb Taking stock to focus on the futureJanuary is when I take stock of where we have been, and think about where we are going. On reflection, I am very proud of the progress we made in 2017, against a backdrop of global uncertainty and unprecedented continuing political change. Being a relatively small profession, our agility enables us to not only weather the storm but also to harness uncertainties as an opportunity for innovation and positive change.

The past two years have been a fantastic experience, and have gone by very quickly indeed. It has been a privilege to lead such a dedicated and talented team of volunteers, as well as the wider team at the IFoA and publishers, who diligently work behind the scenes to deliver the magazine every mont
  • Derek Cribb Strength in numbersOur strategy recognises that actuaries are a small but global community who are at their strongest when working together. Globally, there are around 70,000 qualified actuaries, but more than five million qualified accountants and a similar number of lawyers.
