A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Actuary Collection - This definition is accurate as far as it goes, but in the modern world calculating statistical risk applies to a broad range of endeavors, in addition to insurance. It is said that "risk" is the possibility that an undesirable event will occur. With this in mind, actuaries are those people, some say experts, that evaluate the likelihood of future events, design creative paths that reduce the probability of undesirable events, and decrease the implications of the events that do occur. And all sorts of implications can be anticipated. Death can hardly be avoided completely, but the financial impact can be mitigated through various forms of insurance. It is the actuary who devises ways to manage risk. It is with strong analytical skills, extensive business know how, and a keen and realistic knowledge of basic human nature that the actuary designs the effective programs to manage and control the risks involved. The backbone of our modern business world is made up of the diverse financial institutions that provide the capital to keep the engines of enterprise running. Since we are all so dependent on this financial system, the actuarial sphere is the analytical force that figures the risks involved in business and commerce in general. Once calculated, the risks are planned for, and even though unwanted events occur, a path has been laid beforehand to mitigate the impact. In this discussion of risk, it must be understood that risk is faced by everyone and every organization. And risk comes in many different forms. It is hardly conceivable that any modern enterprises could exist if the enormous risks of operating had not first been considered and addressed. Often the risks are addressed through insurance. By underwriting a certain calculated amount for insurance against defined risks, the costs can be included in the price of the product or service involved. Actuaries work in virtually all sectors of the economy, although they are more heavily represented in the financial sector, especially the insurance area, as well as commercial banking institutions, investment banks, and retirement funding entities. Their skills are also employed by many private corporations, state and local governments, and consulting firms. Actuaries!
