For our third week, we have chosen – Actuary.
An insurance professional skilled in the analysis, evaluation and management of statistical information. Evaluates insurance firms’ reserves, determines rates and rating methods, and determines other business and financial risks.
Actuaries provide commercial, financial and prudential advice on the management of assets and liabilities – especially where long term management and planning are critical factors.
They evaluate the likelihood of events and quantify the contingent outcomes in order to minimize losses, both emotional and financial, associated with uncertain undesirable events.
