2016 Actuary of the Year – nominations open
Recognising and celebrating the achievements and contributions of one of our Members is an ideal opportunity to promote the value which actuaries can add.

Nominations are now invited for the award of 2016 Actuary of the year.


The award is presented to an individual who:

  • has brought credit to the profession and has the capacity to promote the profession under the banner of Actuary of the Year;
  • has made a key contribution to business, the community, government or the profession.

There should be public awareness of the individual and, in making the award, preference will be given to a person who will bring favourable publicity to the profession.

It is expected that a particular recent contribution can be identified in making this award, although an ongoing contribution may be considered relevant. While the individual needs to promote the profession, their contribution may not be specifically actuarial but, being a member of the actuarial profession, would be expected to have been a contributing factor to their contribution.
