Default Census of Actuaries by Employer

In the past couple of weeks, I have come across a presentation deck for investors produced by a P&C carrier mentioning how many actuaries it has on staff; and literature from another carrier which shared similar information.

I observed that the smaller company (premiums roughly 15% of the larger company) claimed more actuaries on staff.

There are obviously a number of reasons this could be...but it got me to wondering: has anyone done the legwork to query a membership database and generate a tally of actuaries by employer?

I'm more interested in P&C....and this is coming just from pure curiosity. (I'm curious enough to ask, but not so curious to do it myself.)

Um, the SOA directory has the CAS members as well.

Filter by company name (if there is only one "company name").

That sounds like work.

This was more of a semi-random question. I'm curious enough to see if there's a canned report lying around, but not curious enough to look up and compile tallies myself (or, at least, there are other things I would prefer to waste my query-running time doing).

Ah.
Can't help you, then.
Guessing that someone at the SOA/AAA/CAS has access to the database that is the source of the online directory.
Not sure who that someone is. Nor, whether they would give anyone else access to it.
Might do it for money, if that is something the groups above are known to do.

I mean, you could do it for a specific company at a time, but not for every company at once.

Using online resources will give you Actuaries, but not actuaries. My guess is that any presentation you saw was based on the latter.
