In this collection of essays published to celebrate the Institute of Actuaries' 150th Anniversary, leading experts describe how actuarial concepts have contributed to many important social and financial developments, and how these ideas will continue to "make financial sense of the future."
Even non-mathematicians will find this book useful in understanding how the scientific bases of the insurance and pensions industries grew up, and how they work today.
The authors each write from the perspective of their own special expertise. They include five former presidents of the Institute of Faculty of Actuaries.
