Actuary

How to become an Actuary.

Actuaries must have a foundation and experience in the fields of mathematics, business, and statistics, usually accompanied by a bachelor's degree. Although not many colleges and universities in the United States offer degrees in actuarial science, degrees can be obtained in related fields. If the bachelor's degree is earned in an unrelated field, the candidate should make sure to take courses in the fields of applied statistics, math, economics, corporate finance, and business.

When someone wants to become an actuary, they are often hired at an entry level position in a business, and spend some time in various roles, such as financial reporting, underwriting, product development, and marketing, so that they are able to better understand the work performed by actuaries and others in the insurance business.

After spending some time at the entry level of their field, a beginning actuary must get certified or licensed by one of two professional societies: the Casualty Actuarial Society (COS) or the Society of Actuaries (SOA).

An actuary will often have a specialty, such as property and casualty insurance or life and health insurance. They use tables and modeling techniques to predict the likelihood of a specific event which would lead to an insurance claim. By estimating the amount of claims, an actuary can actually estimate the amount of money an insurance company can expect to pay. The insurance companies use this information to create premiums that they feel are fair and competitive, but that will still bring them a profit.

Other fields and industries may also employ actuaries, to help with investments, stock offering prices, pension plans, and any other task that involves probability and risk. Many companies create their policies using the advice of actuaries. Consulting actuaries often work as freelancers, providing information to clients on a contract basis.

What skills or qualities do I need to become an Actuary?

Actuaries need to be computer literate, as most actuarial duties are now performed on computers. Basic knowledge of spreadsheets and databases is essential, and competence with statistical s...
