    Good article on Manton. I have one question, though; just what is an actuary. Sounds like an interesting job.

    Hi Steve

    Sorry about the late reply. Actuaries tend to work in either pensions, life insurance, general insurance (car, home, earthquake etc) or investments. I’ve worked mostly in developing life insurance, pension and investment products and their pricing as well as reserving, profit testing etc. Elements of actuarial work can be quite dull (e.g. the more heavy regulatory or statistical element which is probably what we are best known for) but working on products that actually hit the marketplace is quite interesting.

    Every blessing
