IRLA Fund Raising

We are very pleased to be MIND for this, our 20th anniversary year with a target of £10,000. Please use the link below if you would like to donate or contact Secretariat if you would like to hold your own event to help IRLA to raise funds.


Who We Are

IRLA is the UK market body for insurance and reinsurance legacy management professionals. IRLA is recognised as the voice of the legacy management sector by a wide range of government and market bodies including the UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA), the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS); the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) as well as the Employers Liability Tracing Office (ELTO). IRLA is also affiliated with several other market associations all the while working with these others to increase benefits to members.

IRLA activities range from industry consultation with government to promotion of the sector’s skills and expertise. In particular, the IRLA Academy provides top quality, competitively priced, training that is fully accredited by the Chartered Insurance Institute, one of the world’s premier professional training organisations for the general insurance industry. More recently, IRLA has also established its own, annual awards designed to promote and recognise excellence in legacy management.
