PwC’s Actuarial professionals use complex financial and statistical theories to calculate the likelihood of events – anything from a natural disaster to a wholesale IT system failure – to help our clients understand uncertainties and what that means financially for them. It's highly technical work that is also challenging and creative as you find new and innovative ways to distill complex findings into easy-to-digest information for clients.
