Our history

In November 2009, a group of actuarial professional bodies took the unprecedented step of agreeing to collaborate to develop and administer a new qualification in enterprise risk management (ERM) – the Chartered Enterprise Risk Actuary (CERA) – a ground breaking achievement, and the birth of the Global CERA Treaty. Treaty Award Signatories are entitled to award their members to achieve the CERA qualification subject to continued compliance with the requirements of the Treaty.

Member Associations are subject to a rigorous review of their proposed CERA pathway, ensuring it meets the CERA Global Association’s demanding standards. The Treaty includes a strong quality assurance program to maintain the high quality of the qualification. The current members of the CERA Global Association span five continents and the number of Treaty Award Signatories continues to grow.

All Treaty Award Signatories are represented on the CGA Board
