Why become an actuary?

Being an actuary isn’t just a job. It’s a profession.

It’s a career where you can use your talents to solve real world problems.

It’s a commitment to uphold certain standards of performance, professionalism and ethics.

It’s a qualification you can take anywhere in the world.

You’ll join a highly regarded profession whose members are in demand and well-rewarded for their analytical and problem solving skills and their ability to lead – and you’ll gain the fellowship and support of an elite network of peers throughout Australia and internationally.

Are you up for the challenge?

Life as an actuary promises a good income, the freedom to travel, the chance to work with smart people and the opportunity to lead. However, it comes with its own challenges.

The challenge is intellectual rigour. The challenge is persistence. The challenge is sheer hard work.

The rewards are worth it

Be set up for life

Being an actuary is one of the highest paid professions and graduate actuaries are highly employable. A newly qualified Fellow can expect to earn around $100,000 per year and it only gets better – senior actuaries can easily earn $250,000 per year.

Travel the world

Our Australian qualifications are widely recognised in many countries and many Australian actuaries work overseas, from Zurich to Mumbai, in developed and developing economies.

Have a prestigious career

Actuaries can achieve high-level roles that demand hard work but also provide great intellectual stimulation, variety and the ability to make a significant contribution. Only the best will have the intellectual rigour to become an actuary.
