As more investors recognise the need to invest responsibly, climate divestment strategies have become increasingly popular. By avoiding investment in high-emitting firms, such strategies reduce their portfolio emissions and exposure to climate transition risk. There’s also the hope that, by restricting funding, they can use market forces to encourage lower emissions as well as creating stigma and social pressure – making selling and recruiting more difficult for the firms they target.

We came up with the term “actuarial scientist” to mean an actuary who possesses the actuarial skills and domain knowledge, coupled with the understanding of how to use today’s technology. You may have heard other terms floating around such as “digital actuary”. In my view there is definitely space for both actuaries and data scientists to thrive in the insurance world for years to come.
