SCHAUMBURG, Ill., July 29, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Society of Actuaries (SOA) announced today a refreshed brand identity, along with a new logo. Through research and education, the SOA works to advance the actuarial profession and to improve decision making to benefit society. The refreshed brand establishes a consistent identity, which will be featured everywhere from SOA.org to its award-winning magazine, The Actuary.

The shield represents a strong foundation, bound by standards and principles, to protect the value of the SOA credential and the interests of the communities served.

"This brand refresh reflects the essence of the SOA. We are trusted to advance knowledge through actuarial research. We are trusted to nurture and educate our candidates."
The SOA's history traces back to the formation of the Actuarial Society of America in 1889. This organization merged with the American Institute of Actuaries in 1949 to create the SOA. The SOA will continue to use its traditional seal for official documents.
