Articles - Actuary installed as Sheriff of London


 Adrian Waddingham CBE has become one of the two Sheriffs of the City of London. Adrian, a Past Master of the Worshipful Company of Actuaries took up his office as non-Aldermanic Sheriff on the 27th September.

 The two new Sheriffs will live in the Old Bailey for their year of office.

 The office of Sheriff is older than that of the Lord Mayor itself, dating from 1131. The duties of the Sheriffs are to oversee the smooth-running of the Old Bailey, and ensure the comfort of the judges based there.

 The new Lord Mayor will be Alderman Fiona Woolf CBE, only the second Lady Lord Mayor in the history of the city. She takes up office on the 8th November and her election is marked by the colourful Lord Mayor’s Parade around the city on Saturday 9th November.

 The Sheriffs also attend the Lord Mayor in her official duties. The main object of the Lord Mayor and the Sheriffs is to promote London’s financial services at home and abroad, which are so vital to the health of the UK economy.

 Adrian was born in Preston, Lancashire in 1950 and educated at Mount St Mary’s College, Yorkshire and Royal Holloway College at the University of London. He trained as an actuary in Liverpool and became a Fellow of the Institute of Actuaries in 1975. He became a Liveryman in 1987 and served as Master Actuary in 2009/2010. He was co-founder of Barnett Waddingham LLP in 1989. The firm has now become the largest independent firm of actuaries in the UK. In June 2012, Adrian was awarded CBE for services to the actuarial and pensions professions.
