A growing profession
Throughout the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region we’re seeing rapid growth in all branches of the actuarial profession. As the actuarial profession becomes more prevalent across the region, more and more people are becoming actuaries every year.
Our aim is to work in partnership with employers, educators and governments to support this growth.
