Default Actuarial Analyst vs. Risk Analyst?

My understanding is that actuarial analysts usually work on pricing and reserving (traditional actuarial), whereas risk analysts work with cat modeling and reinsurance. Is this correct?

In a primary P&C insurance company is there always a clear dividing line between these two jobs or do they overlap?

Can anyone who has worked in both these roles give any insight?

Thank you.

I have a lot of friends working as risk analysts at the major banks. They typically deal with retail/investment/trading risks. I'm not aware of any risk analysts jobs in P&C.

Risk Analysts usually do the risk reporting.

I work with a few. They do some work on ORSA and GDPR compliance. Skill wise, I think the EL ones are nearly indistinguishable from those of an actuarial analyst.

Risk analyst is a pretty broad job title that could mean a lot of different things.
