andreagluyas_webpostThe New Zealand Society of Actuaries (NZSA) has elected Andrea Gluyas as its first female President, in its nearly 60 year history.


“I am delighted to be the President of the NZSA. It is an honour to lead the society”, says Andrea.


“During my time as President I am keen to further develop our profession’s relationships with our key stakeholders and work closely with our sister organisation in Australia. I look forward to working with the NZSA Council, talented individuals who represent our profession with enthusiasm and insight”, she says.


“This is an exciting time for our profession. Actuaries play an important role in New Zealand’s insurance industry, protecting our homes, assets and livelihoods. We are increasingly contributing to better outcomes in the public sector through our long-term world view and in-depth statistical analysis. I encourage young women and men with a talent for mathematics and an interest in our wider society to consider becoming an actuary”, she adds.


Andrea is a consulting actuary in PwC’s Wellington office. She has been Vice President of the society since 2014.
