Public Policy

The Actuaries Institute provides expert comment on public policy issues, where there is uncertainty of future financial outcomes.

Viewed by policy‑makers as non‑partisan thought‑leaders and trusted advisors, we bring our evaluation of risk and opportunity to areas ranging from retirement incomes, general insurance, life insurance and wealth management to energy, the environment and health financing.

We strive to act in the public interest and our contributions are guided by the principles of transparency, a ‘level playing field’ and good regulation.

We continue to have significant influence on the development of regulation, financial reporting, risk management and related practices in Australia and in Asia.

In order to have valuable public policies that truly reflect the views of the profession, we encourage members to take an interest in public policy and to participate in the policy development process through our Practice Committees, Taskforces, Working Groups and Public Policy Council Committee.
