The new IFoA strategy V.S.M.D. – Vision, Skillsets, Mindsets and Domains – is based on the hard work done by a very dedicated Council, Executive Team together with Jules Constantinou, John Taylor Louise Pryor and myself over the last 18 months. This will be at the heart of my Presidential’s address.
I am delighted to say that what we set out to do are congruent with what past presidents implored us to do – on wider fields, modernising our skillsets, and also making sure our quintessential values do not weigh too heavily on us. I thought the quote by Frank Redington, whom I consider to be greatest actuary in the last 100 years, is highly compelling for our time.
