Actuaries find insights by analysing the past. We estimate future outcomes and help manage future risks.
Actuaries provide advice in many sectors covering topics such as healthcare, superannuation and Kiwisaver, insurance, banking and investments. Actuaries are becoming increasingly involved with non-financial sector organisations that aim to improve outcomes through data-driven insights.
Actuaries make evaluations by being skilled in a variety of disciplines, including mathematics, statistics, business, finance, economics, risk management, data management, demography and behavioural science.
