Right, this is just going to be a huge hodge podge of subjective-ness.

That is if anyone realistically responds to it. Chances are pretty high that if someone says X they've worked for X. Would want to risk anonymity eh?

Since the smartness of a company's actuaries is directly correlated with it's financial success, the only objective measure is how high on the Fortune 500 they are. Therefore the answer is Berkshire Hathaway at number 11, ergo GEICO has the smartest actuaries. QED.

The smartness of a company's actuaries is reflected in how much compensation they receive. The more they make, the smarter they are.
