Become a Certified Actuarial Analyst with CAA Global
CAA Global: an actuarial qualification for a changing world
CAA Global's Certified Actuarial Analyst qualification is a completely new concept in actuarial education which enables you to start working in the dynamic world of financial services with a streamlined, industry-approved online learning qualification.
Supported by some of the largest actuarial education bodies in the world, (the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries and the Society of Actuaries), CAA Global has been designed in partnership with global financial services employers.
Industry experts say the need for actuarial skills is growing as emerging markets across the world become more sophisticated. CAA Global aims to meet that need and offers a route to an internationally recognised qualification for those who want to do that.
But CAA Global offers a way into financial services as a standalone qualification for those who don’t want to follow the traditional actuarial qualification pathway.
“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
