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.

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.

This was my first attempt and the beginning of my journey towards FIA.
