Welcome to the IAA Risk Book
The Risk Book, which currently consists of 20 chapters, provides high-quality reference materials to help readers better understand how actuaries contribute to the assessment and management of risks and inherently uncertain future outcomes often in the financial services (insurance, investment, pension etc.) but also more broadly.
The Risk Book is written to be accessible to a wide range of readers, many of whom may not be actuaries or experts in the areas discussed but may be decision-makers in those areas. Consequently, the Risk Book should provide insight into the ideas and concepts behind actuarial topics and concepts and is therefore focused on being descriptive rather than being formal and mathematically precise.
The Risk Book is intended to be a dynamic and evolving resource, updated over time, reflecting new areas where actuarial expertise can add value, experience and advances, and topics of current interest and importance.

- Actuarial roles
