What are employers saying about the CAA?

It would strengthen localized actuarial work as part of an overall regime of official roles for actuaries.  With the CAA qualification, a good deal of the work required can be carried out locally leaving the actuary to oversee and review the work instead, bringing the capacity into local centers and allowing them to build up their skills and familiarity progressively.
