Why should Actuaries consider an Insurtech as their next career move?

​We have seen a massive increase in Insurtech roles over the last couple of years, but sometimes we do get pushback from actuaries who want to ‘play safe’ and stay within a larger organisation. Whilst it’s true that Insurtech doesn’t suit everyone, here are some reasons why it could be a great next move in your career:

  • Much greater autonomy: Insurtech’s usually have smaller teams with a broad reach, giving actuaries a lot more leeway to make decisions. Most of the Insurtechs we work with are looking for people who can think creatively and proactively solve problems. If you are looking for a role where you can have your own ideas and run with them, Insurtech is a great place to be.

  • Use the latest and greatest technology: Creative solutions need creative methods, and Insurtech’s tend to give their actuaries access to the newest software/platforms so that they can get the job done.

  • Increased visibility within an organisation: Larger insurers have massive analytics teams, and actuaries face the threat of being lost in the woodwork. At an Insurtech, you will be making a tangible and visible impact on the business and speaking to senior stakeholders on a consistent basis. Take it from me; the best actuaries in the market are the ones that have made themselves known!
