I am a recently qualified FIA (Fellow of the Institute of Actuaries, London)
who lives and works in South Africa. However, I shall soon be moving to
the USA. Although I have spent ten years in the life insurance industry
here in South Africa, I am considering switching to the casualty field when
I move the States.
I am interested in hearing from anybody who has any advice or ideas
about making this transition from life insurance to the casualty field.
I believe that as an FIA, I would be able to obtain the ACAS designation
without writing further exams (and the thought of not writing any further
exams is very appealing right now!) But how useful would it be for me to
complete parts 8-10 and qualify as a FCAS? And if it is useful, how
"tough" are the Fellowship exams?
I would also be particularly interested in hearing from any FIA's who are
living and working in the USA and even more interested in hearing from
those who have undertaken the CAS fellowship exams coming from a
British Institute background.
