The Microinsurance Committee is responsible for developing the interest of the profession in all areas related to Microinsurance.

The committee sets out to identify issues relating to Microinsurance that are relevant to the South African actuarial profession.

The committee has set the following objectives:

  • Identify and contribute to the emerging technical and practice needs of members relating to the growing area of Microinsurance.
  • Maintain links with other Practice Area Committees and with other overseas actuarial bodies, including the IAA, and other relevant organisations and professional and industry bodies, both in South Africa and internationally.

Licensed micro insurers require a Head of Actuarial Function. According to Actuarial Society rules, this person must have a current Microinsurance Practising Certificate. The Actuarial Society issues these after view by the Microinsurance Committee and they are valid for four years.

If you are looking for an Associate or Fellow to act as your Head of Actuarial Function, please request the list of members with current Microinsurance Practising Certificates from the committee by contacting the committee secretary.
