Fellowship Programme

Congrats to David

Congratulations to David Hatherell, one of our exceptional Fellows, who completed his Banking Fellowship Actuarial Exam recently – he is one of only 9 people to have passed this exam in the world! South Africa is the first to launch a specialisation in banking which makes this a new academic field for actuaries to specialise in.

On completion of his Fellowship Professionalism Course, David will be a Certified Enterprise Risk Actuary (CERA) and a Fellow of the Actuarial Society of South Africa (FASSA), specialising in banking. We are so proud of you
