Actuaries are business professionals who measure and manage the financial consequences of risk. Using mathematics, statistics and financial theory to study uncertain future events, like those related to insurance and pension programs, actuaries evaluate the likelihood of those events to determine ways to reduce them and decrease the impact of those that actually occur.
