"I gained great confidence in the advice provided from the fact you have had years of experience in various actuarial fields"
The number of actuaries working within non-life insurance or general insurance has increased significantly in recent years and continues to do so. There are a wide range of employers within the non-life sector, including insurers, reinsurers, Lloyd's syndicates, banks, brokers, consultancies, rating agencies and regulators.
Actuaries working in this sector tend to provide advice in three main areas: pricing; reserving; and capital modelling. In addition, actuaries are becoming increasingly involved in catastrophe modelling and wider enterprise risk management within the non-life insurance sector. Some roles provide the opportunity to specialise in one particular area, whereas others provide exposure to two or more areas.
Our Managing Director, Antony Buxton FIA, worked as Head of Actuarial Services for Legal & General's non-life business. As such, we have direct experience working within this sector and many strong client relationships. We have enjoyed significant success in placing candidates of all levels in non-life actuarial vacancies.

These include experienced catastrophe modellers, entry level candidates and non-life actuaries looking to specialise within this growing area.

Actuaries are moving into a wider range of roles within the traditional sectors, for example risk and catastrophe modelling roles within the insurance industry, and they are also moving into wider fields roles outside of these areas.

Demand for these opportunities is high and only exceptional candidates with the strongest academic credentials, high levels of commercial awareness and powerful influencing skills will secure roles in this area.
