Tom Miller recognized the need to write this book a few years ago, after reviewing postings on popular discussion pages frequented by actuaries. He was surprised and troubled by the magnitude of misinformation posted on these websites. Clearly actuaries and actuarial students posting this information are only trying to be helpful to one another, but they frequently lack the necessary experience and expertise to offer sound advice. Tom seeks to provide readers of his career guide with valuable insights regarding the actuarial employment market, covering topics such as choice of product specialization, how to conduct effective job searches, switching successfully from insurance to consulting and inside tips on what clients are really looking for when they interview you. Armed with deep knowledge and a unique perspective on the actuarial profession, Tom expects that this book will be a resource that will help you make better career decisions and “Achieve Your Pinnacle.”

Statistical and Probabilistic Methods in Actuarial Science covers many of the diverse methods in applied probability and statistics for students aspiring to careers in insurance, actuarial science, and finance. The book builds on students’ existing knowledge of probability and statistics by establishing a solid and thorough understanding of these methods. It also emphasizes the wide variety of practical situations in insurance and actuarial science where these techniques may be used. Although some chapters are linked, several can be studied independently from the others. The first chapter introduces claims reserving via the deterministic chain ladder technique. The next few chapters survey loss distributions, risk models in a fixed period of time, and surplus processes, followed by an examination of credibility theory in which collateral and sample information are brought together to provide reasonable methods of estimation. In the subsequent chapter, experience rating via no claim discount schemes for motor insurance provides an interesting application of Markov chain methods. The final chapters discuss generalized linear models and decision and game theory. Developed by an author with many years of teaching experience, this text presents an accessible, sound foundation in both the theory and applications of actuarial science. It encourages students to use the statistical software package R to check examples and solve problems.

This books presents in a very compact way the fundamental aspects of probability theory. It provides the key concepts and tools a student needs to master the Exam P of the Society of Actuaries (SOA) and the Exam 1 of the Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS). This text benefits from the vision and experience of the author, who is a professor who has taught probability theory in finance, insurance, and risk management for many years. The author is also a Fellow of the Society of Actuaries. Students interested in economics, finance, statistics, mathematics, or other fields, will also find this book a useful tool to help them further their studies. This book can also be warmly recommended as a prerequisite reading to the students who consider taking, or are in the process of taking, the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) exams. Indeed, the statistics and portfolio management material studied in the CFA syllabus is fundamentally based on the probability results shown in this book. This text does not just present the material; it furthers an understanding of the foundations of probability theory. This book does not include exercises because it is designed to be used with the (long) series of exercises made freely available by the Society of Actuaries. The tables in the appendix link the exercises of the Society of Actuaries with the equations in the book. These tables can be a very convenient tool for providing hints for the exercises that the student cannot solve - instead of going directly to the solutions. The order in which the contents of this book are presented mostly respects the order of the Society of Actuaries and Casualty Actuarial Society syllabi. Very few adjustments were made to this order and they were done for pedagogical improvement reasons only. This text is the first one in a series dedicated to actuarial associateship exams. In each of these books, conceptual links between the contents of the various exams are provided. This book was also written in such a way that you can use it throughout your career. This book is the book the author would have liked to have when he took the Exam P of the Society of Actuaries. It contains all the formulas that are useful to solve the official exercises of the SOA. This book is compact, theoretically solid, and not verbose. Get a first view of the contents: Click on Look Inside!

Excerpt from Introduction to Actuarial Science In the more comprehensive meaning Of the term, actuarial science includes an expert knowl edge Of the principles of compound interest as well as the laws Of insurance probabilities. Pub lic accountants, however, are usually interested only in the interest phases of actuarial science, leaving the application Of the laws of insurance probabilities to the actuary, who ascertains the measurement Of risks and establishes tables of rates. This discussion of actuarial science will, therefore, be -restricted to the phases thereof which deal with compound interest.
