2022 Graduate Scheme - Forensic & Litigation Consulting, Insurance (Actuarial)
What we do:
The Global Insurance Services Practice is a team of over 200 experienced insurance professionals supported by a global network of over 5,000 colleagues. We have first-hand insurance industry knowledge, combined with operational, technical and executional capability.
Our aim is to grow an insurance focused management consulting and actuarial practice in EMEA by focusing on the current and emerging needs of our clients. These clients turn to us for help with a wide variety of complex problems, including: advice on strategy, mergers and acquisitions, capital, financial and risk management. We advise household names and specialist insurers in both life and general insurance across the region.
The actuarial area of the practice offers a wide range of services in the actuarial field, including (but not limited to):
- Pricing & reserve calculations
- Helping insurers charge the correct premiums for their products (e.g. car insurance) to reflect the risks they are taking; and ensuring they hold an appropriate amount of financial resources to both comply with regulation and give comfort to policyholders that their claims will be paid.
- Capital & reinsurance modelling
- Looking at all (financial and non-financial) risks faced by an insurer to calculate the amount of additional financial backing needed to cover the volatility of these risks. This involves carrying out modelling of different scenarios to ensure the amount of resources held is sufficient under different environments that the company may find itself in, in the future.
- Mergers & Acquisitions due diligence
- Analysing a potential sale or purchase of an insurer from a commercial, strategic, financial and/or actuarial standpoint.
- Liability estimation
- Using actuarial techniques to calculate the amount which a company should hold on its balance sheet so the claims of policyholders can be paid as they become due.
We offer services to both the life and general insurance areas of the actuarial profession. We aim to give the successful candidate exposure to both fields and thus a wide variety of experience in the very varied elements of work carried out by actuaries.
