"The course was very useful – as a refresher and also to get more detailed info with regard to the pricing analysis."

Lauren Kent
Endurance Worldwide

Robert Jump

"The course has helped lift the mystery of actuaries and terminology and helped complete the picture between practice and theory."

David Wardle

"The content and presentation of this course was excellent. It was one of the best courses I have attended in years."


"Very useful to understand the concepts even though I did not have any previous background."


"Improved understanding of actuarial techniques. However, course content steamed a bit for five days, but spacing out over five weeks useful."


"Very good summary of all areas of actuarial in general insurance."

David Foster
Chaucer Syndicates

"This course is highly recommended for graduates with a numerate degree who wish to pursue a career in insurance but do not necessarily wish to take the actuarial examinations. I started this course during my second week of work in the industry. Even though all concepts both actuarial and insurance were new to me, I was able to understand the lectures, follow the case studies and do the homework."

Frank Blasco

"Was a great overview – very useful information to take back and make use of back at the office."


"Suddenly many concepts I have come across in my 13 years of insurance became clear. I especially found the capital modelling extremely useful – even though my actuarial colleagues tried to explain some of the concepts to me, I did not have the full picture."

Jeanette Joubert
Chartis Insurance

"I found the course extremely useful. Very clear and practically focused – certainly helped to demystify many actuarial concepts. Thank you Ana!"

"Really useful course focussing on the practicalities."


"Ana is an experienced industry practitioner and this shows in the way she presents this course. Forget the academic chaff; this is the industry practitioner’s guide to pricing. I strongly recommend it."


"Very practical, very relevant, would definitively recommend to my colleagues. You learn all of this taking the exams, but it’s good to put the theory into practice. This course exceeded my expectations (and I had pretty high expectations to begin with!)."
