Frequently Asked Questions

A strategic problem solver who analyzes, evaluates, and quantifies risk. Actuaries have a highly specialized multidisciplinary skillset which includes applied math, statistics, finance, economics, and computer programming among other disciplines. They work collaboratively with individuals, institutions, and systems to make practical decisions, especially when there is a high degree of underlying uncertainty. Determining the cost of an insurance policy, the valuation of an entity in a merger/acquisition and the financial viability of a social system are a few scenarios where actuaries add value.

Actuaries are most commonly employed by insurance companies and consulting firms with insurance and risk management practices, but they also work in several other domains such as the public sector, utilities, and the energy sector. 

Our definition of a quant professional is broader than the classical quant you might think of on Wall Street who builds financial models and simulates financial instrument payoffs for investment bankers.

For us, a quant professional is someone who spends more than 50% of their working time in a spreadsheet, dashboard, or script editor.  

This definition incorporates professionals across several domains: actuarial science, risk management, analytics, engineering, information technology, accountants, financial analysts and product managers among others.
