The Society's Vision for the actuarial profession in Ireland is that:
"Actuaries are trusted as experts in evaluating risk and financial uncertainty"
With this Vision in mind, our Mission is:
- To support actuaries throughout their career so that they have the skills, attributes and knowledge appropriate to their roles and the current and future needs of actuarial practice;
- To develop, maintain and enforce actuarial standards that require actuaries to advise their clients with integrity, professionalism and objectivity;
- To serve the public interest by promoting thought leadership and contributing as an independent voice on matters where an actuarial perspective can add value.
