Actuary The Hartford Insurance Company BS Math BYU
“I am a casualty actuary at The Hartford Insurance Company. Casualty actuaries deal with catastrophic or unnatural risks that can occur to people or property. Actuaries use skills in mathematics, economics, finance, probability and statistics, and business to assess the risk of certain events occurring.”
“While I use math every day the most beneficial part of my math background have been my creative thinking and problem solving skills. I enjoy my job and look forward to a new set of challenges each day.”
An actuary is a business professional who deals with the financial impact of risk and uncertainty. Actuaries apply mathematical and statistical theories to solve real business problems. Actuaries assemble and analyze data to estimate the probability and likely cost of an event such as death, sickness, injury, disability, or loss of property. They also address financial questions; including those involving the way a company should invest its resources to maximize its return on investments. “Actuaries are in high demand, and they are highly paid for the services they render.”
