The International Actuarial Association (IAA) is pleased to announce that, at its meeting on November 20, 2023 in Lisbon, Portugal, the Council of the IAA approved the following individuals to serve as Officers of the IAA with effect from January 1, 2024: Charles Cowling (UK) as President and Bozenna Hinton (Australia) as President-Elect.

The Officers for the period January 1, 2024, to December 31, 2024.

Mr Cowling’s involvement in the work of the IAA started in 2011 as a delegate of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries on the Pensions and Employee Benefits Committee. Most recently, he served as Chair of the Advance Committee. In addition, he was a member of the Executive Committee, Chair of the Renewal Task Force, Vice-Chair and Chair of Pensions and Employee Benefits Committee, IAA Delegate to the OECD/IOPS, IAA Delegate to the IASB, and IAA Delegate to the PBSS Section.

In his presidential address, Charles Cowling says: “I am delighted to be taking a leadership role in the Actuarial Profession at this challenging time. Actuaries have always been known for their deep analytical skills in the areas of insurance and pensions. But more recently our risk management and data analytical skills have proved invaluable in the areas of banking, data science, climate change and pandemic modelling. (…) Globally, we face many challenges and, as actuaries, we want to play our part in helping society combat the impact of climate change and solving some of the many difficult problems of protection gaps around the world. Too many people have insufficient savings or financial protection in the event of disaster. We actuaries have an important role to play in making the world a better and safer place for all.”
