I work as a Manager in EY’s Life Actuarial team, having joined the firm as a graduate in September 2014. Throughout my time at EY, I’ve worked on a wide variety of projects across topics including Solvency II, investments and modelling. Most recently I have been managing the actuarial team on the audit of one of our new insurance clients. This has been an exciting challenge as it has involved developing a strong understanding of a new insurer.

Alongside my client work, I mentor a number of junior members of my team. I find this particularly fulfilling as it allows me to draw upon my own experience to support the development of others. I’m also heavily involved in driving the innovation agenda within our actuarial team. In particular, a colleague and I recently won a firm-wide innovation challenge, receiving funding to develop the idea which we pitched to a panel of senior members of the firm.

A career highlight for me was having the opportunity to present on liquidity risk management at the 2019 Life

Conference. While it was definitely daunting to present to such a large audience, the presentation was a success and it was an experience I won’t forget.

Outside of work, you’ll most likely find me playing badminton, running or go-karting. I’m a fan of Formula 1 and definitely channel my inner F1 driver on the go-kart track!
