Actuaries are problem solvers and strategic thinkers, who use their mathematical skills to help measure the probability and risk of future events. They use these skills to predict the financial impact of these events on a business and their clients. Business and government increasingly depend on the skills of actuaries and analysts to help them model and plan for the future.
