The job

Summary of the job role

About the role:
Actuaries are highly regarded professionals; actuaries are problem solvers and strategic thinkers with a deep understanding of financial systems

Actuaries come from different academic backgrounds but share a love of maths even if they haven't done a maths degree. When you train as an actuary you'll learn how to analyse data, evaluate financial risks, and communicate this data to non-specialists.

Career options:

Every area of business is subject to risks so an actuarial career offers many employment options, including banking, insurance, healthcare, pensions, investment but also non-financial areas.

The UK actuarial qualification is highly valued throughout the world. Of the qualified members of the UK profession, 60% are UK based, with the remainder overseas. The IFoA works with other international actuarial bodies to arrange reciprocal recognition of the professional qualifications between the different bodies.
