1 A guide to a great career. The new General Insurance path to Fellowship with the Society of Actuaries.

2 There will always be risk and uncertainty. Why not choose a profession dealing with it? The SOA is creating a world-class General Insurance track that will meet the needs for actuarial talent by insurers and consulting firms worldwide. As with other SOA Fellows, our General Insurance Fellows will have the rigorous training the SOA is renowned for, and will be equipped with the knowledge and skills needed to face actuarial challenges anywhere across the globe. - Greg Heidrich, Executive Director, Society of Actuaries One thing is certain: Nothing is certain. But you might be surprised to learn to what extent an actuary can make forecasts of future events. It s not magic, just math, statistics and insight into human behavior. Actuaries help insurance companies and financial institutions calculate and minimize risk. Over the coming years actuaries are expected to be highly sought after professionals in the Asia-Pacific region. If you are a student of mathematics, statistics, finance, economics or actuarial science, the new General Insurance pathway with the Society of Actuaries (SOA) will open the doors to a highly demanding but greatly rewarding career. General insurance (also known as Property and Casualty or Non-Life) products are often broadly categorized as commercial line and personal line products. A general insurance actuary works in the auto and home insurance fields, as well as corporate and industrial insurance product development. What is the likelihood of the driver of this car being involved in an accident in the next year? As an actuary you will use data from a vast number of fields to predict the likelihood of events such as these.

3 Invest in risk. Math, statistics and curiosity. There are no risk-free investments. Except perhaps investing in an actuarial career. Where there is opportunity, there is always an element of risk. The role of actuaries is to manage risk and turn it into a competitive edge. Actuaries assess political and financial risks, as well as risks due to weather and human behavior. You will find actuaries as key members of management in insurance companies, financial institutions, government agencies, consulting companies and large corporations all over the world. Most actuaries have a background in mathematics, statistics, finance, economics or actuarial science. It might sound like they bury their noses in books and numbers, but the fact is that in addition to strong analytical skills the profession also requires a great deal of curiosity and understanding of human nature. As an actuary credentialed by the SOA, you will be part of an international network of professionals who share experiences and help each other develop in their careers. Actuaries are generally well compensated and SOAcredentialed actuaries are highly regarded. Do you think you have what it takes to make forecasts about the future? In that case you should consider a career as an actuary. There will always be uncertainty and bad luck. The good news is that most things can be insured. Buying insurance is a way for people to secure their assets; with adequate insurance coverage people don t need to worry as much about the future. This in turn means that money that has been stored away to cover for worst-case scenarios is freed to be invested in businesses and financial instruments. The SOA is introducing the General Insurance pathway to Fellowship to meet the demands of the insurance industry throughout Asia. Nothing is free of risk, but investing in an actuarial career is a wise business decision. Throughout much of Asia-Pacific, insurers are contending with a supply of qualified insurance staff that is far below the demand. For instance, a study by the Southwestern University of Finance and Economics in Chengdu indicates that China will need approximately 58,000 new insurance management staff and 700 new actuaries by Ernst & Young, Flexibility in uncertain times: 2012 global insurance outlook If you are a student of mathematics, statistics, finance, economics or actuarial science, the new General Insurance pathway to Fellowship with the SOA is a great career opportunity. The Society of Actuaries experienced a 65% growth in membership and candidates from the Asia-Pacific region in the past five years. What do you need to know to insure a company with an inventory worth millions of dollars? Actuaries manage and reduce risk to create better products for consumers and higher profits for companies.

4 The new General Insurance pathway to Fellowship with the SOA. The new General Insurance pathway will be consistent with the SOA s five other tracks and actuarial methodologies represented in the syllabus will be on a broad international basis that will be attractive to candidates regardless of location. By supporting the basic qualification standards for all actuarial disciplines, the SOA will provide more time for candidates to choose their area of specialization, as well as provide mid-career actuarial professionals with more options. The SOA credentials The Society of Actuaries is the world s largest organization for professional actuaries and our credentials are recognized all over the world. There are three SOA professional credentials: FSA. Fellow of the Society of Actuaries ASA. Associate of the Society of Actuaries CERA. Chartered Enterprise Risk Analyst The SOA offers various tracks to Fellowship: Individual Life and Annuities, Retirement Benefits, Group and Health, Corporate Finance and Enterprise Risk Management, and Quantitative Finance and Investments. Effective July 1, 2013, all tracks to Fellowship will generally include the following requirements: ASA requirements, two five-hour track-specific exams, one two-hour track-specific exam, three track-specific e-learning modules, the Decision Making and Communication (DMAC) module and the Fellowship Admissions Course (FAC). The General Insurance requirements will be the same with one exception; the track will include an additional exam. The additional exam for the General Insurance track will be a two-hour multiple-choice exam covering the topic Introduction to General Insurance. This exam will ensure the candidates are well versed in the wide variety of areas covered under the definition of General Insurance. General Insurance Fellowship Track (After the attainment of the Associate of Society of Actuaries (ASA) credential) Introduction to General Insurance Exam (2 hours) Introduction to Ratemaking and Reserving Exam (5 hours) Financial and Regulatory Environment Exam (5 hours) Financial Economics Module Advanced Topics in General Insurance Exam (2 hours) or Enterprise Risk Management Exam (4 hours) Applications of Statistical Techniques Module Enterprise Risk Management Module (may be taken at any time) In addition to the General Insurance specific exams and modules, all candidates (across all tracks) will also have to take the Decision Making and Communication (DMAC) Module and the Fellowship Admissions Course (FAC). For more details on the new General Insurance track, including curriculum and registration information, please visit asia.soa.org or us at
