The American Academy of Actuaries was established in 1965 to professionalize the U.S. actuarial community and earn the public’s trust. The Academy’s role in the standards and institutions that make up the professionalism infrastructure are no accident; they are at the heart of the Academy’s mission. 

The Academy provides standards of conduct, practice, and qualification for the U.S. actuarial profession. These standards together ensure: responsibility, competence and trust.
