Find out about the practice areas in which our members work and apply their expertise
Actuaries apply their expertise and provide specialist advice in the practice areas below. Some affect all actuaries, like finance and sustainability, while others provide them with the opportunity to focus their skills in specialised sectors. Our role in these practice areas is to support our members working in them and to promote the profession.
IFoA communities is our new digital community platform, a space for member-to-member engagement, providing a platform for sharing expertise and open discussions.
You can search by geography, role, or shared areas of interest by exploring community groups and connecting with like-minded individuals and collaborating around topics that are of interest to you. You can also explore topics in depth through the community collection of articles on developments in the field and links to relevant community resources, and discuss hot topics and the latest research in the community group forum.
