Welcome to the Staple Inn Actuarial Society

With over 8,000 members worldwide, the Staple Inn Actuarial Society (SIAS) exists to represent and serve the interests of younger members of the actuarial profession, whilst also acting as the London region actuarial society.

We organise a wide range of social and professional events for our members, publish The Actuary magazine and jobsite, in addition to supporting a number of charitable causes. Click here to find out more about SIAS. If you have any comments or queries about SIAS and its activities contact us at

Latest News:

Annual Dinner Donations!: We raised over £975 at the charity raffle at our Annual Dinner this year to the charities Guide Dogs for the Blind, Dementia UK and Royal National Lifeboat Institution – the companies that donated prizes were Hymans, HFG, Vinopolis, Barnett Waddingham, Lotus School of Yoga, Coco Mangai, Milliman, Pacific Life Re, Towers Watson, RedActive, Worshipful Company of Actuaries, IFoA, Oliver James, Star Actuarial and ActEd. We would like to thank all those listed for your kind donations!

Volunteers Needed!: SIAS has partnered with The Brokerage Citylink to provide “introduction to being an actuary” sessions to sixth-form students from inner-city London schools. We are looking for volunteers to help out at these workshops, presenting to students on their experiences, both in work at university. This is an excellent opportunity for actuaries to hone their professional skills, while at the same time giving something back to the community. If you are interested in helping out at one of the upcoming workshops please email Katie and Natanya at!

Calling all speakers!: SIAS are looking for presenters for the 2015 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!

Go Green with The Actuary: 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.
