Risk & Actuarial

Anthony is now retired from paid employment but remains a university adjunct and is active in the actuarial profession with involvement in research and policy development. He is also a member of the Council of the Actuaries Institute. He believes that the actuarial profession fulfils its social role by creating financial security. He has attempted in his career to contribute to this at different times by:

  • Developing products that more closely meet people's needs, particularly in life insurance companies and retirement funds.
  • Focusing the role of the actuarial profession on financial security by university teaching and research.
  • Contributing to government policy largely by submissions on issues of the day.
