Actuaries in finance and investment

Finance and investment actuaries work in many areas, including institutional, equity, bond, real estate and other investment.

Investment today centres around the capital markets: that is, stock and bond markets, and currency, property and derivatives markets.

Many actuaries are involved in day-to-day activity in these markets (on behalf of their clients or employers), while others advise on the longer-term characteristics and implications of different investment stances.
