2024 Presidential Address


Each year, the newly-elected President of the Actuaries Institute issues their Presidential Address, setting the tone for the year ahead. 

In Data for Good, 2024 President David Whittle speaks to the pivotal role of actuaries in helping to solve crucial long-term issues – the impacts of climate change, intergenerational equity, funding for disability and the role of AI. 

In his address, David speaks about: 

  • the proud history and future value of actuaries; 

  • the key societal issues in which actuaries are leading risk management solutions, including climate change, artificial intelligence and intergenerational equity; 

  • David’s rich and varied career, which is a testament to the possibilities available to actuaries; and

  • the importance of attracting new people to the profession to shape the world of tomorrow. 

"We need to be bold to continue claiming a seat at the table where risks are weighed and decisions are made."
