The Asian Actuarial Congress (AAC), formerly known as East Asian Actuarial Congress (EAAC), was established in 1981. Its constitution was formalised in 1989 with the following objectives:

  • To exchange ideas and information on all kinds of actuarial knowledge.
  • To discuss subjects of mutual interest relating to actuarial theory and practice with particular application to East Asia economic and regulatory conditions.
  • To promote the actuarial profession within the East Asian region and to discuss standards of competence and conduct within the actuarial profession.
  • To work towards the establishment of a data base of information of interest to actuaries so that interested parties can refer to such data base.
  • To hold meetings and discussions, publish papers, reports and studies, make or sponsor investigations, promote educational activities, and to undertake such other activities as may be decided by the Executive Board.
  • To maintain contact with other actuarial and professional organisations and interested individuals or organisations.

To date, the AAC is made up of 12 actuarial organisations with close to 25,000 members. The actuarial organisations are:
  • Actuaries Institute Australia
  • China Association of Actuaries
  • The Actuarial Society of Hong Kong
  • The Institute of Actuaries of India
  • The Society of Actuaries of Indonesia
  • The Institute of Actuaries of Japan
  • The Institute of Actuaries of Korea
  • Actuarial Society of Malaysia
  • Actuarial Society of Philippines
  • Singapore Actuarial Society
  • Actuarial Institute of Chinese Taipei
  • The Society of Actuaries of Thailand
In the early years, a biennial event (called East Asian Actuarial Conference and now known as Asian Actuarial Conference) was organised by varying actuarial organisations every 2 years in member countries and starting from 2013, it has become an annual event.
