An actuary is a business professional who uses specialized skills from probability, statistics and economics to define, analyze, and solve financial and social problems. Actuaries create and manage insurance programs that reduce the adverse financial impact of both expected and unexpected events, such as illnesses, accidents, death, or catastrophes. In addition, actuaries design healthcare and pension plans, making sure there are sufficient resources to pay health and retirement benefits while charging participants a fair price. Actuaries are also in demand in the growing enterprise risk management field, helping companies analyze and hedge risks.
