Once primarily found in the insurance industry, actuaries are now found throughout corporate America, helping executives make intelligent and informed financial decisions. In addition to helping insurers mitigate the chances of losses, actuaries help weigh risk in pension funds, stock and bond portfolios, and even hedge funds. Actuaries also work in areas beyond the financial industry, helping to determine and alleviate risks for product launches, production facility expansions and much more.
