Actuaries are professionals that are educated for mathematics, statistics, probability and finance, and have analytic and business skills that they apply in the analysis of the financial uncertainty and risks in the complex financial and social systems in the world.
The actuaries analyze the past events, estimate the current risk and model what can happen in the future. That way they estimate the financial implications on the work and provide important information for the creators of the long-term strategies.
More than 100 years, the actuaries around the world give their expertise in the fields of risk management, life insurance, non- life insurance, pension and health insurance, and increasingly they are engaged in corporate finances, investments, banking sector, regulation, education, etc.
Besides mathematical knowledge, actuaries have good understanding in economy, practice and regulation of the country in which they operate, the demographic and financial movements, and on a practical manner they present the actuarial knowledge and the results from their analysis.
Actuaries, via their national actuarial associations contribute to the protection of the public interest of the country through the application of their knowledge for public goods and provide assistance and advice on regulations in the area of finance and social and health insurance.
