Can be at a higher level commensurate with experience.
The Actuary develops actuarial analyses, with a focus on either pricing or reserving, in accordance with CAS (Casualty Actuarial Society) principles. These analyses will directly contribute to the overall performance of the actuarial area. As the analyses typically rely upon complex processes, with the potential to change in connection with the organization’s needs, the Actuary will be accountable for making changes necessary to keep the analyses up-to-date and free of errors. The Actuary I is therefore expected to thoroughly understand the analyses undertaken, with the ability to detail the inputs to others in the actuarial area and the organization.
