A Qualification in “Applied Common Sense”

Actuaries work across diverse industries, from insurance, pensions and benefits, investment and asset management through to banking, healthcare, capital projects and risk.

Working individually or as part of a team, you could find yourself being a consultant, analyst, trouble-shooter and risk assessor – all in the same day; so because your own future will be wide open, you will also be the kind of person who’s ready for anything.

You need to be able to distinguish between the essential and the inessential and, once qualified, to have a long-term perspective.

I often describe the actuarial qualification as a qualification in ‘applied common sense’.
