Top tips for an Actuarial career

Expert advice provided by Director, Kirsten Quarman


Dedication and commitment to qualifications

To become an Actuary, perseverance is essential. You will have to register with IFoA a governing body. Overall, there are 13 exams to pass to qualify as an Actuary. Depending on your degree or the companies you work within, you may receive exemptions from certain exams. The average qualification and exams take 3+years to complete but, results in a very rewarding and successful Actuarial career. 

Be an active member of the actuarial community 

As the insurance market expands, so does its network. It's important to take this as an opportunity to widen your connections through networking events (for example, the Indian Actuarial Network or the Chinese Actuarial Network), conferences (i.e. GIRO, Life), seminars or community groups. You’ll be able to gain regular market insights, receive advice from other Actuaries and even find a mentor to assist you with your actuarial career development. 


The Insurance market has shifted towards data transformation, with an introduction of larger datasets promising more process efficiencies. Consider what technical skills might be beneficial for your career, such as specific actuarial software experience with Tyche, Igloo, ReMetrica, MoSes, RAFM and Prophet.
