Default Definition of an actuary in Spanish

I'm looking for a definition of an actuary in Spanish, preferably very short and simple. When I meet up with my family that doesn't speak any English, I have big problem trying to explain what I do for a living and it's frusterating for me.

I need something I can memorize and that is easily said by someone with only a couple years of high school Spanish which occured over a decade ago.

Thanks in advance.

How about this one?

"Yo pongo el precio a riesgos financieros"

Make sure to pronounce a strong "r" in "riesgos"

You may define it using some example. This was originated in Mexico, by some people that worked alongside with actuaries: cuál es la diferencia entre un terorista y un actuario? Que con el terorista puedes negociar.

REVA AMD RPSR (it doesn't sound as catchy as LOL OMG ROFL though...)
"What is the difference between a terrorist and an actuary? That with a terrorist you can negotiate."

Also that last one ("I put the price to financial risks.") I might have said as "Desarrollo modelos matematicales para preciar el riesgo." ("I develop mathematical models for pricing risk.")
