Public Policy & Media

As the peak professional body for actuaries in Australia, the Actuaries Institute actively participates in key public policy discussions to build and promote public confidence in the services provided by actuaries and in the actuarial profession.

We do so through a combination of research commissioned by the Institute from actuaries who are experts in the subject matter at hand and a passionate volunteer membership with expertise across a wide range of areas.

Australia currently has about four million retirees, with another 670,000 people intending to retire in the next five years. Retirement Matters, a Dialogue Paper written by actuaries Andrew Gale and Stephen Huppert, argues that the time for Australia to reimagine retirement is now.
