Policy Development and Consultation

The Actuaries Institute seeks to develop and promote the actuarial profession’s value, by contributing to and informing debate on public policy. We engage in public policy issues, where it presents both:

  • public benefit – by enabling actuaries to contribute their skills and expertise to help solve policy problems facing Australia; and
  • strategic opportunity – to position the profession, so that whereever there is uncertainty of future financial outcomes, actuaries are sought after for their valued advice and authoritative comment.

In order to have valuable public policies that truly reflect the views of the profession, we encourage members to take an interest in public policy and to participate in the policy development process through our Practice Committees, Taskforces, Working Groups and Public Policy Council Committee.
