When Preparation Meets Opportunity

Being ready when opportunity knocks.

When Preparation Meets Opportunity
My colleague at Pinnacle Actuarial Resources, Inc., Gary Wang, often says that he’s lucky. As a consulting actuary in the field of predictive analytics, Gary lives the exact life he envisioned for himself when he was a kid. I understand how Gary feels. We are fortunate to work in an exciting and expanding industry absolutely filled with opportunity. We get to work with great clients and tackle interesting projects on a daily basis. It’s an exceptional time to be in predictive analytics and I agree with Gary: We are incredibly lucky.

2015 Ratemaking and Product Management Seminar

Innovation and Predictive Analytics Take Center Stage

2015 Ratemaking and Product Management Seminar
Michael Chen March 20, 2015 Posted in: Blog Posts, Telematics / UBI
The 2015 Casualty Actuarial Society Ratemaking and Product Management Seminar (RPM) was held last week in Dallas. When attending these seminars I always hope to find some bit of applicable information to take back and apply to my everyday work. I was able to find that and more. The speakers and session content were very interesting, and there were so many good concurrent sessions that it was hard choosing which ones to attend.
