Latest News:

Bowling Update | 27 May 2014: It has come to our attention that this event clashes with a certain world cup fixture – Uruguay vs England (KO 8pm BST). For the football fans planning on competing in the bowling tournament fear not, we can confirm that the venue will be showing the game on screens near the bar area. If you have any questions please contact us on

Volunteer with SIAS | 27 May 2014: Throughout June, SIAS will be running a number of sessions in inner city London schools aimed at aiding pupil's development and progression into the world of work, in conjunction with The Brokerage Citylink, an independent charity providing young people in London with a 'pathway' of opportunities into employment. Following these school sessions, we are looking for volunteers to run a more in-depth half-day workshop at Staple Inn on the 9th July, including a business game session. Volunteers will support by presenting to the students on their experiences followed by mingling with the students as the business game takes place. If you are interested in helping out please email Mark & Katie at

Go Green with The Actuary | 28 February 2014: At SIAS we are offering our readers the choice to “go green” by opting to receive electronic copies of The Actuary Magazine, rather than printed copies. If this might suit you, please log into the member's area of the IFoA's website to update your preferences.

Calling all speakers!: SIAS are looking for presenters for the 2014 Programme schedule. Talks can cover traditional topics (e.g. pensions, insurance, investment) or broader topics & non-technical ideas from outside the Profession. This provides an excellent opportunity for members to share ideas and discuss the ‘hot topics’ of the day. We particularly encourage younger members to consider writing a paper and presenting their ideas. If you are interested please email
