Model risk and inform strategic decisions.

Can everything in the universe be expressed in math? Actuaries build mathematical models to account for the many risk factors organizations must consider when building strategy. Financial, logistical, and business risks all have to be carefully weighed against each other, and actuaries help paint a picture of the road ahead, with numbers and statistics.
