Twins trump actuarial exams
9 July 2008 – Twin brothers have followed in the footsteps of their father to pass the exams necessary to qualify as a Fellow of the Institute of Actuaries.
Charles and Nicholas Owen were among the students from the UK and overseas who learned the results of their final actuarial exams this month. A total of 3,005 papers were submitted in the final examinations, of which 1,654 were passes.
Charles said he was relieved to learn they had both passed the exams, held in April,
to become Fellows. The results were published on Friday July 4.
“It is a good feeling to have passed the exams, and there is also a big element of relief that we both passed. We would have felt awkward if only one of us had passed.”
