Invest in your company’s greatest assets
The right qualification for your business
Our Certified Actuarial Analyst qualification professionalises analysts in technical and analytical roles. It equips your employees with the critical data skills that modern businesses need to compete in our complex, global markets.
Industries and organizations are having to process increasingly complex data and rapidly changing information, in order to support and drive sustainable business growth. This has lead to an increase in demand for supporting analytical roles across an increasingly broader range of sectors from health and care to data science and technology, education, energy, and financial services.
With its business focus, the CAA qualification is supported by leading international professional organizations which have been educating and regulating actuaries for decades; the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA), the Society of Actuaries (SoA), and the Actuarial Society of South Africa (ASSA). Additionally, The World Bank has also highlighted the CAA qualification to all insurance supervisors as a potential solution to developing actuarial capacity.
“Working in an actuarial role is highly sought after. I’m hoping the CAA qualification will give me a head start and help me to gain entry to the actuarial industry. I have an undergraduate qualification in accounting and finance; I feel that with the CAA qualification on my CV it will definitely enhance my employability and differentiate me from my peers.”
Joseph Mundia, Business Analyst, Development Bank of Namibia; Windhoek, Namibia
Qualified Certified Actuarial Analysts will become immediate assets to your organization
The qualification prepares them with the mathematical skills and understanding to:
- Carry out necessary analysis to determine charges for products, schemes, contracts and other arrangements that provide benefits on contingent events
- Be effective in manipulating and analyzing data sets.
- Communicate financial concepts in the work environment.
"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
