In Dick Francis' Hot Money, the brother of the jockey/sleuth hero is an actuary. They are sons of a uber-wealthy financier, and at one point it is mentioned that the father got rich due to a combination of financial acumen and a love of risk-taking, but the jockey son inherited only the love of risk-taking without the financial smarts, and the actuary inherited the financial brains but was risk-averse. So no millions earned there.
