IAA Election Results for 2015

Frederick Rowley

The International Actuarial Association (IAA) is pleased to announce that, at its meeting on September 13, 2014 in London, the Council of the IAA elected the following individuals to serve as Officers of the IAA effective January 1, 2015.

President: Frederick Rowley (Australia)
President-Elect: Malcolm Campbell (Sweden)
Immediate Past President: Robert L. Brown (Canada)

All terms of office are for one year ending on December 31, 2015.
Fred’s involvement in the work of the IAA started in 2001 as the Actuaries Institute Australia’s delegate to the Advice & Assistance Committee. Over the years Fred has also served as Vice-chair of the Professionalism Committee and Vice-chair of the China Subcommittee. He was elected as a member of the Executive Committee in 2010, and chaired the Strategic Planning Subcommittee in 2013.

I am honoured to be asked to serve the actuarial profession internationally through the office of IAA President, and I thank the IAA member associations for the trust they have placed in me.
I also want to recognize the achievements and hard work o

f our Immediate Past President, Rob Brown, in guiding the IAA skilfully on so many fronts during 2014. I intend to pursue our strategic objectives with the same enthusiasm, energy and focus.

In 2015, we will see a continued strengthening of the IAA’s governance processes to make it more efficient and effective and I look forward to an increasingly close engagement with our member associations. The new governance framework will demonstrate clearly how our value proposition is being fulfilled on their behalf, and on behalf of the profession globally. Our branding initiatives in particular, will support the profession’s development and prosperity worldwide. 

As we enter the new year, I know I can count on the continuing commitment of my many IAA colleagues in our numerous committees and sections, as well as our highly motivated and effective secretariat team, in advancing these important goals.

Our current work in assisting the International Association of Insurance Supervisors, during the development of their international capital standards, is a fine example of the profession’s value-adding service to the global financial community. As our relationships with key supranational organisations mature, I look forward to demonstrating how the profession adds value in a wider range of contexts, from the more traditional areas like insurance, retirement and healthcare funding, to emerging areas such as banking, enterprise risk management, and data analytics."
