Risk Analysis Professionals are known as Actuaries.  Actuaries are essential employees because they determine future risk, make price decisions, and formulate investment strategies. Most Actuaries specialize in insurance; others work primarily in finance or employee benefits.


They also address financial  questions, including pension planning or how a company should invest resources to maximize return on investment in light of Risk Analysis. Moreover, Actuaries may help determine company policy and sometimes explain complex technical matters to company executives, government officials and shareholders


They also may help companies develop plans to enter new lines of business or new geographic markets with existing lines of business by performing  Risk Analysis in competitive settings.
