We’re supporting women in the actuarial profession with our Actuarial Mentoring Programme (AMP). It's a partnership between ourselves and the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries. It is sponsored by Pension Insurance Corporation.
The AMP programme has been developed in response to the fact that women are leaving the profession on average 13 years earlier than male counterparts. This is leading to skewed gender balance at senior levels, despite near parity in the number of male and female actuaries at lower levels.
80 talented female actuaries are being matched this year with senior male and female leaders from another organisation in a nine-month mentoring relationship designed to retain female talent at senior levels. In it's inaugural 2017/18 year, nine leading organisations got involved, that number has doubled to 16 for the scheme’s second year.
The programme has already received high praise and recognition from the Rt Hon Nicky Morgan MP and Chair of the Treasury Select Committee, who has said: “Congratulations to everyone involved in AMP and good luck for year two. It is great to see so many senior champions advocating mentoring and diversity across the actuarial profession. We know there is still a lack of diversity at the top of the financial services sector, including the actuarial profession. I am sure that AMP will play a key part in changing that.”
