Reading about the company is implied in any case you want to land a job and do some excel exercises

General Insurance

If you are going to a General Insurance company (GI Company), the possibilities are there that you may end up in Pricing or Reserving. We have not covered pricing that much and we don’t expect a recruiter to ask Pricing questions from an inexperienced, however if you have CT6 on your CV, you have already read about Reserving and most basically IBNR.

We have articles which follow up with the Reserving Exercises and are placed in a very genuine language to make you understand all about that.

The next step are the Actuarial terms used and not only the mothods. It is important to understand the difference between Pure IBNR and IBNER. You can find most of them in our Daily Dose section which we have been shouting out day and night. We request you to converse on them due to the factors listed in out first article posted on this session’s jobs.

In case of Life Insurance, we have terms which are already there in Actuarial Forum. The CT1 and CT5 actuarial interview questions are listed here.
