p&c vs. pension vs. life & health
Suppose the P&C track were selected. Is there any way to switch to finance later on? My questions are the same for the other two categories.
I'm wondering because there's no way to know from the outset whether actuarial science might become monotonous after awhile causing the P&C actuary to wish that he could switch into a finance career later for a change of pace. Well frankly I just don't know what to expect. Why is there a trend for people to enter pension or life & health tracks, according to a DW Simpson recruiter, who informed me that the P&C salaries were higher because most want the opportunity to switch into finance? Are those people under a misguided belief that they could piggyback actuarial science to enter finance or are there other considerations involved such as contingency planning if they grow weary of actuarial science or something?
