“We believe that the demands facing small to medium sized insurers across Europe – such as Solvency II regulations, EU developments (ie PRIIPS), past business thematic reviews, plus general economic pressures on administering business and delivering investment returns – mean that actuarial services and support need to align to these challenges and provide firms with value at a cost-effective level. We have established our business, people, technology and strategy in order to support our clients in this way.”
Scott Robinson, Founder & CEO
“Our recent work includes a number of product development projects for UK retail savings products and European pension development; capital management and Solvency II analysis; assisting with a large-scale actuarial model implementation for a major UK insurer; review of internal model methodology and documentation; advice and support to the audit and risk committee of a UK mutual; actuarial and financial support, including Solvency II valuation and modelling, for a start-up UK insurer; assisting a firm with FCA thematic review (long-standing customers).”
Scott Robinson, Founder & CEO
“The focus of our business and our aim is to develop our actuarial analytical services, so that our clients can use such services without the need for a great deal of expensive consulting support. We believe this puts them in control of the analysis they need, such as policy and asset data validation, Solvency II valuation, ORSA analysis and PRIIPS calculations, and enables them to undertake this analysis in a cost- effective manner that meets budget constraints, and is able to deliver to tight timescales.”
Martin Sher, COO
“Our consultants have all worked for most of their careers either within major actuarial consultancies, or in industry. We have a vast amount of knowledge and experience of working with friendly societies and small to large insurers, both in the UK and abroad. The experience we bring covers the range of Chief Actuary and With-Profit Actuary roles, and aspects such as Solvency II reporting, financial reporting, risk management, investment strategy, business strategy, M&A, actuarial modelling, and product development.”
Scott Robinson, CEO
