Kemp, who is currently a partner in Kingsley Napley’s regulatory and professional discipline department, has been acting general counsel to the Actuarial Profession on a part-time basis since May.
Commenting on the appointment, the Actuarial Profession chief executive Derek Cribb said: “We’re looking forward to benefiting from Ben’s expertise and experience in ensuring that our regulatory approach is thoroughly modern, effective and, above all, assures public confidence in the work of actuaries in the years ahead.”
Kemp is dual-qualified in England and Scotland and is experienced in advising regulatory and professional bodies across a wide range of sectors.
“The profession’s developing a range of initiatives to bring together a more proactive and cohesive approach to licensing and regulation that is at the same time
appropriately robust and proportionate,” he said.
“I look forward to playing my part in helping to deliver a regulatory approach that serves the public interest, demonstrates the value of our high professional standards and, in so doing, supports our members, regulatory partners, the users of actuaries and members of the general public alike.”
Kemp will lead the profession’s legal and regulatory team in Edinburgh and his appointment will take effect on 6 February 2012.
