Actuarial consultant

Actuarial consultants are experts in quantifying financial risk and advise clients on investments and insurance related decisions using a variety of risk and cost analysis measurements.

Risk analyst

Risk analysts work with data and statistics, and advanced mathematical formulas to provide companies with a comprehensive analysis of their financial, and operational outlook. They will review risk factors and assess their likelihood of occurring, and the impact this will cause the organisation and provide an overall rating and make suggestions on what controls/ structures an organisation needs to put in place in order to minimise, or manage those risks.
