Default There should be another designation, higher than Fellow.

There should be another designation, higher than Fellow.

Achieving the designation would require three things:

1) Passing 8 hour exam on general insurance.

2) Passing 8 hour exam on actuarial managing.

3) Certain amount of volunteer work for the society.


The designation would signal that an individual has the strengths for a managing actuary type of role.

I don't see how 1, 2 or 3 could possibly signal ones ability as a manager.

Strong technical skills is not what makes a good Manager.

because some people desire to take exams for the rest of their lives? fellowship is enough.

also, not everyone who is an FSA works in insurance. why should there be an exam on general insurance?

that is a lot of no. and being able to take exams does not make you a good actuary, or a good manager.

When I see general insurance, I was like why it's only applicable to P&C and have you passed any of the CAS exams lol

in searching on the o.p.'s history on here, it appears that you aren't even an ASA yet. why are you thinking there should be even more exams at this point?

The number of designations are fine as it currently stands.

If you truly feel that this has merit, then offer the designation and see if the open market takes you up on your idea that it has value. Could be an arbitrage opportunity for you.

[tan]But that skill is apparently required to make oneself a qualified actuary[/tan]
