The Staple Inn Actuarial Society was originally founded in 1910 as the Institute of Actuaries Students’ Society. Its original objectives were to assist students in preparing for actuarial exams and to provide a forum to practice public speaking. Over time SIAS has evolved to become a body with over 5,500 members around the world to both:

  • Support the professional interests of younger members of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (“IFoA”), particularly students and those with up to five years post-qualification experience.
  • Act as the regional actuarial society for London and South East England.

On 01 July 2017, SIAS’s business was transferred into the newly established Staple Inn Actuarial Society Limited, a company limited by a guarantee. This move better manages any personal liability resulting from the societies’ activities and makes contracting with other companies simpler.

Charity
Last but not least, SIAS, in partnership with The Brokerage CityLink, provides introductory sessions on the actuarial profession to inner city sixth form students in London.
