A talk with Ayush Anand, Actuarial Recruiter from GreenTree Advisory

We got this rare opportunity to bring an Actuarial Recruiter, Ayush Anand from GreenTree Advisory on our platform The Actuarial Club Forums so he can give answers of what you have in mind. The session was completely open where you can ask to a Recruiter who has experience of more than 6 years in Recruitment and handled almost each and every process in Recruiting. He is been focusing on Analytics and Actuaries since starting of his career and can be called as a Consultant all by himself!

Basic difference and similarity in actuary and data scientist

While they both revolve around data, there are certain lines drawn between these two. For instance, actuaries are found primarily in the insurance industry and risk management. On the other hand data scientist can be found in virtually any industry. If we have a comparative lookout of actuarial science and data science, prior is about the study of finance and related fields and activities and latter is about studying different data sets, their relationship and analysis.

Unabashedly and unapologetically in love with numbers

Shubhanjali Gupta, fellow Actuary, says I googled ‘Actuarial Science’ and was rewarded with a number of hits, one of the top ones being www.actuaries.org.uk. And so it began! I read about the profession, the testimonials, the routes to qualifying and I was hooked. I looked into the papers I was supposed to take and read through the syllabus. Post this I made a list of what papers I already knew bits of. Being a Statistics student my first choice was to go with CT-3. In addition I decided to take CT1 and CT6. This was my first attempt and the beginning of my journey towards FIA.

It’s a Great Time to Be an Actuary

Greg Hayward, assistant vice president & actuary at State Farm, manages a group of actuaries and data scientists specializing in predictive analytics. He observes that actuaries are using analytics to help claims adjusters better manage claims, marketing personnel improve the customer’s experience, IT departments manage peak demand cycles, as well as several other areas. Greg has never seen actuaries with analytics skills in higher demand.
