A unique role has arisen for a senior investments actuary to join a regulator as a Director, Investments, with a focus on improving actuarial standards and providing clearer guidance for actuaries in a rapidly evolving area. Hot topics such as insurers increasing exposure to illiquid assets and to infrastructure projects, and to esg investing are driving changes in the type of work that investment actuaries are doing, and so a role has arisen for a senior actuary with relevant investments experience to join the regulator and to help shape policy decisions which impacts on the work that all actuaries undertake.
Are you analytically minded and keen to think about problems facing the industry and keen to be involved in projects to steer policy decisions which will make things better?
Would you like a much better work life balance and to work with very friendly like-minded colleagues in a non-commercially driven organisation, where profitability is not on the agenda?
This is a highly interactive role with senior figures across the industry so you will need to possess strong oral and written communications, including strong presentation skills and experience of speaking to large and challenging audiences. You will also be comfortable in taking ownership and responsibility for timely delivery of high quality of projects. This is a role which will involve working collaboratively in a team environment and also to work independently when required.
If you have deep knowledge of investments work (either from an insurer, pensions consultancy or bank) and you are familiar with emerging topics such as illiquid assets, then please contact Bradley.Grant@goodmanmasson.com or 0207 019 8869 to find out more. This is a fast moving area where actuaries can do a lot of thinking and need some better guidance from experts in this field.
Typical projects will be more around setting assumptions around investment returns and some work around esg (environmental, social and governmental) investing.
