Honorary Fellows of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries

As a professional body, we have over 100 Honorary Fellows who have been leaders in their fields of business, academia, government and other public bodies, either here in the UK or internationally



Many of our Honorary Fellows are very active in the profession and complement the work of over 29,000 IFoA members around the world.    Please view our current list of Honorary Fellows for more information on who forms this part of our membership.

Nominating future Honorary Fellows

The IFoA annually seeks nominations for individuals who might be invited to be put forward for election as an Honorary Fellow.  They should be individuals who are able to add value to the profession and can have an active and ongoing involvement with the IFoA.

Based on the current bye-laws and subsequent guidance provided by Council, Honorary Fellow nominees should be individuals who:

  • "...have achieved distinction in related fields or given significant service to the actuarial profession." (bye-law 37)
  • can add value to the profession
  • have a direct connection with the profession
  • have an ongoing relationship with the profession.

Further to this, proposed Honorary Fellows will also be considered in the extent to which they can support the profession's strategy.

Honorary Fellows have the same voting rights as Fellows but are not subject to a member subscription fee.  Honorary Fellows are subject to the Actuaries’ Code, and we would expect them to behave in a way that would not damage the reputation of the IFoA.

All nominations require a proposer and seconder from within the IFoA membership and are usually considered annually by the Awards Committee at its December meeting.  The nomination form can be accessed here.

Any queries can be directed to the IFoA's Research and Knowledge team.
