The roles

Actuarial & Capital Modelling

By analysing our past and present business and management data, you'll help us to quantify the risks and probabilities of future events, providing us with actionable information and a competitive advantage in one of three key areas:

  • Reserving: applying statistical techniques to assess the likely outcome of our insurance liabilities, and the capital provisions required to meet them.
  • Pricing: assessing the frequency and average amount of claims in order to establish our risk appetite and allow us to price our risks appropriately and competitively.
  • Capital modelling: projecting our liabilities and assets to assess solvency and future capital needs.

You'll be working with some of the industry's best actuaries who will help and guide you during your program, especially while you're studying for your actuarial examinations. Successful completion of modules will see you rewarded with pay increases and bonuses, allowing your career to progress as quickly as you want it to.
