Skip to content. Students need to pass or obtain exemptions from all of the CT subjects. Exam bookings are open for a limited period for each exam, and you must make your application by the closing date given on the form. You will need to pay the exam fee when you apply for the exam. The exam may be of interest to:. With the introduction of our new Curriculum , we made changes to the exam options available to our non-members.
Previously a non-member could only apply for the CT1 exam. However as we approach the new Curriculum examinations and we only had two exam sittings left of the current curriculum, we will have offered our non-members the following options:. The exams will be based on the syllabus as supported by the core reading. The ActEd course material will be the main source of tuition as it expands on the core reading.
The recommended study time for this exam is between and hours depending on your past educational background in the subject. Check our list of University courses with exemptions. Part of the Protection, Health and Care Conference webinar series. Notice is hereby given that the Annual General Meeting of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries will be held online via a live webinar on Monday 15 June Focussing on topics including funding and savings, pension law current issues, ESG, the end game and transferring risk, investment issues, data visualisation and data science.
Expect a great line-up of speakers and a wide range of thought-provoking topics. Using the Covid crisis as the backdrop, he will invite IFoA and the profession to re-imagine our roles in a digital age and a future fraught with uncertainty and opportunity. Technical Issues in General Insurance. Technical Issues in General Insurance provides content across all key areas of the general insurance sector whilst also offering cross-practice area technical topic deep-dives. A prospective research study - the first to look at an insured population sample - designed to test whether psychosocial factors predict return to work in disability claims.
Backtesting is one of the more valuable tests performed when validating internal models: it tells us something about model output relative to results observed historically hopefully that the two are in agreement! This talk will cover how to build better portfolios by ESG factor-neutralizing and how investors can position portfolios to be more resilient in relation to the wide-ranging financial effects of climate change. This discussion will have a look at the much talked about R0 number.
It will dissect why this average number is so poorly understood, and why it is a bad indicator of the pandemic progression. In particular it will discuss how serious errors in decision making can be made by relying on this number.
In this session we will present the results of an international survey of claims assessors. We will explore key similarities and differences in claims practices in different locations, and their impact on the management of disability claims.
Climate change represents a material risk to future financial stability and creates implications for the work, actions and decision making of actuaries. Join us to learn about the science behind global warming and what that means for policy makers and society over the coming decades. The release of the PRA consultation paper may signal a good time for insurers to review and update their liquidity risk management framework.
Technical session covering how a complex, long term climate change risk can be modelled and understood by asset owners. Converting lifetime savings into a lifelong income are a fundamental part of pensions. Yet this is often not part of DC pension plans. One possibility is to offer a post-retirement, pooled annuity option, perhaps structured as a Collective Defined Contribution CDC plan, to retirees.
Pooled annuities convert lump-sum savings to a life annuity by collectively pooling longevity risk. The problem as well as the opportunity is Fixed Income. The presentation will cover a summary of findings over the past few years of working on the boundary between data science and actuarial. The webinar will describe and review several data science approaches and discuss their relevance and use in actuarial pricing. A practical and theoretical look at risk from wider perspectives, drawing on theories and examples from other fields, as well as social experiments, the session aims to stimulate members to consider information asymmetry, bias, Bayesian methods, behavioural finance and behavioural psychology when determining pension scheme risk.
However, moving to business as usual can be challenging. We will openly share practical applications and lessons learned from embedding machine learning in reserving, including:. This talk expands on recent changes to Solvency II regulation to include sustainability risks and explores whether private equity offers an opportunity for making l long-term and impactful investments.
We will answer the following questions:. How sustainable private equity could be used in your portfolio to qualify for more favourable capital treatment under Solvency II? Across the General Insurance market actuarial pricing tools are being migrated from Excel to web-based technologies.
Web based pricing technology offers many synergies with AI and Machine Learning. But they are often hampered by poor design and practically always perform worse than their Excel counterparts! In this talk we cover the practicalities of implementing ESG within real asset investment decisions.
Capital deployed in real assets is invested for a long term and has far reaching impact on the environment and society. However, implementing ESG into real asset investment decisions is not straightforward and requires a different approach to public market assets. This webinar will provide an overview of how and why we built a Death Toolbox using Shiny. This includes a live demonstration of the tool that enables a user to explore mortality datasets without knowing specialist coding techniques.
Analysing how this landscape has changed over time shows that whilst the risk profile of DB schemes has reduced underfunding has persisted. The session will explore these trends and provide an insight into how funding may evolve in the future under a number of our modelled scenarios.
The IFoA is running a webinar on Thursday 9 July which will focus on the challenges and issues facing defined contribution savers who wish to access illiquid investments. Our speakers will provide perspectives from their diverse experience, including DC fund implementation, platforms, master trusts, the role of trustees, regulation, and parallels with other fund types. They will then come together in a panel discussion with audience interaction.
The webinar is likely to be of interest to actuaries working across the spectrum of financial services, including investment advisers, asset managers, insurers, fund platforms and DC master trusts. Climate change risks are likely to become material for many risk management and investment decisions.
This will require to incorporate explicitly climate change in the tools used for risk management and investment decisions. At present existing climate change tools are often too crude for decision making. Because of Covid, forecasters predict a severe recession in , followed by a V or U-shaped recovery. This impacts both individuals and companies.
This session will provide an overview of the Population Health Management Working Party's research including defining impactability and impactability modelling, discussing some examples of specific modelling approaches, considering the practical challenges across the NHS as well as wider public perception and ethical issues. Many actuaries consider career opportunities in the Finance and Investment practice area after having started off in more traditional actuarial roles such as valuations, capital management or pricing.
This session is aimed at helping actuaries to better understand roles in Finance and Investment and how they can fine tune their skills to pursue such careers. With the rising prevalence of dementia, how can we manage this risk effectively and can insurance do more? Matt Singleton, Ageing Lead at Swiss Re, will cover these topics and demonstrate how insurance could help people address their concerns.
This session will cover how we have challenged conventional approaches to underwriting and risk selection in order to develop an approach that aligns current practices, customer and broader interests with robust risk assessment. Modelling the structure and trends of cancer morbidity risk is important for pricing and reserving in related health insurance fields such as critical illness insurance and care provision. We model the dynamics of cancer incidence over time in different regions in England, using ONS data.
The modelling allows estimation of cancer rates at various age, year, gender and region levels, following a Bayesian setting to account for statistical uncertainty. Our analysis indicates significant regional variation in cancer incidence rates. In this talk we will outline the steps Aviva took in pulling together our first large-scale disclosures on the exposure of our business to climate change published in March ; in line with the recommendations of the Taskforce on Climate-related Financial Disclosures.
The insurance industry currently underwrites customers with diabetes based on a range of factors, medical expertise and various medical studies. The work undertaken by the Diabetes Working Party would help the industry to approach this using current research findings to update and enhance how potential risk from diabetes is considered.
This includes the need to understand the underwriting implications as treatments improve, and potentially to develop new products that are tailored to those with diabetes. Search form Search.

The aim of the Probability and Mathematical Statistics subject is to provide a grounding in the aspects of statistics and in particular statistical modelling that are of relevance to actuarial work.
The exam may be of interest to: university students interested in becoming actuaries or enhancing their career prospects in finance and financial services staff in financial services who are interested in becoming actuaries people who work with actuaries and want to develop their numeracy skills employers who want to see if their staff have the potential to become actuaries.

However as we approach the new Curriculum examinations and we only had two exam sittings left of the current curriculum, we will have offered our non-members the following options: For the April exams , non-members were able to apply for either CT1 Financial Mathematics or CT3 Probability and Mathematical Statistics.
This gave non-members the option to complete the CT1 exam if they had been studying towards this; or to take CT3 which if passed will gain a CS1 in For the September exams , non-members were only able to apply for CT3. This is because CT1 and CT5 are merging under the new curriculum and passes in both will be required to gain the CM1 exam in Past papers, reports, syllabus Exam papers and other material for subject CT3.
