"As emerging markets grow so does demand for actuarial skills – a critical role in managing risk and driving sustainable growth. The Certified Actuarial Analyst (CAA) qualification is essential in helping meet this growing need. CAA is accessible and efficient, not only in terms of cost and time but also geographically, as exam centres are available worldwide. I often encourage employers and employees alike to consider this qualification."
—Craig Thorburn, World Bank Group; Washington D.C., United States
"I believe CAA makes me stand out in the IT Insurance job market—where employers were not looking for a fully qualified actuary to manage their actuarial IT systems but someone with an IT background and a good understanding of actuarial work. The CAA meant I have the qualification to demonstrate this understanding."
—Halima Michelle Sadiq, Zurich Insurance; London, United Kingdom
"Insurance is an industry where data is in abundance. As the capital flowing into insurance becomes increasingly sophisticated, so will the data analysis required to justify the return on investment. With a blend of statistics and knowledge gained via the CAA qualification, I’ll have the skills to answer the questions that keep not only the chiefs but also the underwriters awake at night—and provide an evidence base to guide their strategic decisions."
—Tony Carter, Risk Analyst and Statistician, SLE Worldwide; Sydney, Australia

"It’s given me the confidence to, perhaps, in the future, look at other jobs with a renewed confidence, and I would certainly recommend to colleagues in a similar position to apply for CAA."
—Ewa Burton, QBE; London, United Kingdom
"The CAA will help me to move into a field where I aspire to work. Having worked in the Life and Health Technical Accounting department for more than six years, the CAA will help me to add value to my experience. I aspire to move into the actuarial team in our company, and, in order to achieve this, I need strong support in terms of knowledge. The CAA, with its short duration, strong content and lesser number of modules, looks like a very good tool to achieve this."
—Neha Jaiswar, Senior Analyst RM Process Governance, Swiss Re Shared Services (India) Private Ltd.; Bangalore, India
"I had the desire to pursue another professional course, but one with the blend of insurance, finance and investments. The CAA was the first to come in mind. I decided to approach my employer with the proposal on whether I could be sponsored, and fortunately enough, I got the go-ahead. I must say that pursuing the CAA is an opportunity of a lifetime. I think it will go a long way in ensuring that people have the necessary skills to work in all spheres of actuarial work, finance and risk management."
