Articles - IFoA comments on changes announced in Autumn Statement


 Nick Salter, President of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA) comments on the measures announced in today’s Autumn Statement.

 “The IFoA sees the announcement on flood and coastal defence schemes as a positive step toward improving flood resilience. The long term affordability of flood insurance will ultimately depend in part on the extent of investment in national flood defences and its ability to materially reduce the extent of flooding and associated damage. We would hope that the investment strategy will include surface flooding which has been a major cause of flood damage in recent years and that it will manage the risks associated with future development on flood plains.

 “Flood defences will be even more important over the long term with the potential consequences of climate change and the increase in extreme weather events. Our Resource and Environment Board and Climate Change Working Party will be looking at how actuarial science can assist policy makers to respond to these challenges.”
