About AG and AI
The Royal Actuarial Association (Koninklijk Actuarieel Genootschap , AG) is the professional association of actuaries and actuarial specialists in the Netherlands, of which very nearly all actuaries are members. The AG, which has celebrated its 125th anniversary in 2013, has developed into a platform for actuaries to communicate among themselves and with society at large.
Regular contact is also maintained with international actuarial organisations. The AG publishes the periodical 'De Actuaris', which contains scientific and other opinion-influencing articles and interviews. The Actuary Certificate entitles you to admittance as a member of the AG and to the status of AG Actuary (AAG).

The European Actuarial Academy (EAA) was founded on 29 August,2005, by the Actuarial Associations of Germany, Switzerland, Austria and the Netherlands. These four associations are also the EAA stakeholders. Its foundation was a response to the increased demand from Central and Eastern European countries for Actuary professionalisation. EAA strives to become the knowledge centre of European Actuary education. EAA has on offer:
- Actuarial education, including examination
- Permanent education for (certified) actuaries
- Consulting on Actuarial education
The objective of the Actuarial Association is, on the one hand, to make the actuarial profession better known and appreciated (among other means by research and publications, co-operation with other organisations, internationalisation, evolution and reglementation of the profession), and on the other to educate and train actuaries in terms of quality and integrity (through education and quality control, seminars and meetings). It is imperative that the Actuarial Association follows new developments, such as risk management, and incorporate these aspects in their education and continuing professional development .
