The Buddy System is a global network of IFoA members, who are happy to offer informal, confidential support to other members. What could you gain from talking one-to-one with an experienced actuary in your field?
This service is facilitated by the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA). Other than facilitating this informal support and discussion amongst members, the IFoA plays no role in how the service operates, i.e. the IFoA does not oversee how, where and when members meet and does not monitor and/or endorse the advice, guidance or recommendations that may be given by any member, or the processes or procedures that any member suggests. Nor is the IFoA responsible for the availability of, or follow up by, members to members.
The IFoA accept no liability (to the fullest extent permitted by law) for any loss, damage, or inconvenience arising as a result of a member’s use of this service. The IFoA reserves the right at its sole discretion to exclude members from using this service if the IFoA considers that a member’s use is not in keeping with the purpose for which the service is provided. The Buddy System is for member-to-member support and the contact details of Buddies are provided solely for this purpose. Please do not use these for the promotion or marketing of your services or those of other individuals or firms.
