Helping you meet changing priorities with flexible actuarial resource

With so much constant change in the insurance and pensions industry, from evolving regulatory and accounting standards to global events which impact businesses and customers, it can be hard to keep up with developments whilst protecting your company’s interests.

We ensure you can respond in an agile, cost-effective way to the challenging economic climate - and remain compliant with the latest reporting requirements - by providing highly skilled, experienced actuaries to enhance your resilience and boost your delivery capacity.

Our large, dedicated FCA-regulated team of over 90 actuarial specialists is already working collaboratively with major insurance and pensions providers - across the UK, helping them to react quickly to fluctuations in demand.

Whether you need additional short-, medium- or long-term actuarial resources, or require an ongoing outsourced service, you can rely on our extensive industry and actuarial expertise across a range of clients, systems, activities and products, to ensure you have the support you need, when you need it.

How we help

01

Flexible resource for when you need it

From immediate short-term interim actuaries to longer-term arrangements, our flexible resource model across all levels – from experienced actuaries to more junior analysts - allows you to scale up or down to safeguard delivery whilst minimising permanent team costs. This budget-friendly alternative to consultants also avoids the compliance and onboarding complexities of using individual contractors.

02

A range of cost-effective actuarial services

We have experience across policy servicing, policy remediation, product development and governance, pricing, complex liabilities calculations, financial reporting, model development and system migration.

03

The latest technologies to deliver efficiency and insight

With extensive experience of process improvements and implementing data-driven automation, we’re uniquely placed to deliver significant efficiencies. We also combine actuarial and data expertise alongside technologies such as artificial intelligence and machine learning to provide useful insight.

04

Outsourcing and modelling-as-a-service options

We offer outsourcing solutions for policy servicing and small actuarial functions, providing technical support, financial reporting, and modelling services. We develop, maintain, review and enhance actuarial models across all platforms for the accurate assessment of solvency and future capital needs, as well as individual policy projections.

05

Actuarial project delivery

We apply our wider capabilities and expertise to cross-functional programmes and projects, including for regulatory change – such as IFRS17 implementation – system migrations, end-to-end complaint handling and remediation. Across multiple clients we’ve corrected 270 legacy policy errors which impacted over 800,000 policies, handling complex redress calculations that have totalled over £400million paid out in redress payments.

06

Transformation

With extensive expertise in managing major system migrations and transformation projects, we’ve migrated over 400,000 policies across 167 product variants to new policy administration systems. In the process, we’ve removed legacy over-engineering by rationalising over 20% of the calculations, saving over 250 days of development and testing, and significantly simplifying the product and calculation landscape.
