The Nigerian Actuarial Society (NAS) is the premier Nigerian actuarial professional body comprised of actuaries and students practicing in the Federal Republic of Nigeria and its neighboring countries. Established in December 1986, NAS has been committed to serving the Nigerian community of persons with an interest in perusing or practicing actuarial science.
The Actuarial Profession in Nigeria is still in its infancy, with only a small proportion of people with any slight clue of what an actuary
does and only a very small number of persons practicing the profession here. However, with recent developments in financial reporting, increasing financial size of Nigerian companies and other factors, there has been an increased demand for actuaries. With an increasing membership comprising of 71 members, including 9 fully qualified actuaries, the society aims at bridging the gap between the users of actuarial information and the providers of these information.
