Zim-born actuary Marjorie Ngwenya to head UK actuaries body iFoA

Marjorie Ngwenya (pictured), currently Chief Risk Officer for Old Mutual’s African business unit, has been appointment president-elect of the UK’s Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (iFoA).

Ngwenya said of her appointment:

"It's a real honour to be elected by my fellow Council members to the presidential team… I am looking forward to continuing the important work done by those who have held the role before me and to bringing the benefits of actuarial science to more people around the world. The actuarial profession is continuing to expand into new disciplines and I look forward to contributing to this impressive work to move the profession forward."

Of particular importance is the fact that Zimbabwean-born Ngwenya is the first person not based in Britain to ever hold the position. She will take up her position as president-elect in June, eventually taking up the role of president in June next year.
