A new generation of actuaries
Actuaries are professionals who develop solutions for complex financial issues. They have a deep understanding of mathematics, statistics and business management and use these assets to measure and manage risk, help businesses grow and provide value to their customers. Actuaries have a financial focus e.g. on insurance, employee benefits, consulting, banking, investments, government, energy, product development, ERM, predictive analytics and more.
