Actuarial Techniques for Underwriting Management

Invaluable for the “modern” underwriting world!

Richard Bryant

Ark Syndicate Management

Not for the faint-hearted, not for the beginner. However provides invaluable actuarial background to already acquired knowledge. Interactive Q&A throughout. Recommended.


A new company that is filling a big hole in the training market for actuarial skills for non-actuaries.

Stuart Dale


A course well delivered. Very interactive case studies. Highly recommended for underwriting managers and senior underwriters.


Excellent course which should be a must for all senior underwriters.


Excellent explanation of relevant course material.

Tim Glover

Pembroke Managing Agency

Very interesting and Ana gave us much food for thought.

Grant Le Sage


Ana produced an excellent insight into this subject and I very much valued the clarity of explanations that brings this subject to life and clarified my understanding of the issues.

Reinsurance Pricing for Non-Actuaries

Felt the course content was relevant and well put together. Very useful 2 day course.

Treaty Underwriter at Lloyd’s

The course was very useful – as a refresher and also to get more detailed info with regard to the pricing analysis.

Lauren Kent

Endurance Worldwide

Good course, well presented. Thoroughly enjoyable and relevant for me at this early stage of my career. I have only been “underwriting” for 5 months. Thank you.

Mark Quigley

Chaucer Syndicates

I really enjoyed the course. It was very relevant to every day pricing issues. In depth, clear explanations.


Training Testimonials

Fundamentals of actuarial techniques in general insurance (FATGI)

I enjoyed the course a great deal and would recommend it to anyone operating in the London Market who would like in depth insight into the techniques used by actuaries today.

Robert Jump

MAP Underwriting

The course has helped lift the mystery of actuaries and terminology and helped complete the picture between practice and theory.

David Wardle


Very useful to understand the concepts even though I did not have any previous background.


Improved understanding of actuarial techniques. However, course content steamed a bit for five days, but spacing out over five weeks useful.


Very good summary of all areas of actuarial in general insurance.

David Foster

Chaucer Syndicates

This course is highly recommended for graduates with a numerate degree who wish to pursue a career in insurance but do not necessarily wish to take the actuarial examinations. I started this course during my second week of work in the industry. Even though all concepts both actuarial and insurance were new to me, I was able to understand the lectures, follow the case studies and do the homework.

Frank Blasco


Was a great overview – very useful information to take back and make use of back at the office.


The content and presentation of this course was excellent. It was one of the best courses I have attended in years.


We have covered a lot in five days. Inevitably with such a subject it fitted between basic things that I knew and some real gems. Overall I feel it has delivered what it promised and will have been of great benefit. I found the homework very useful but very time-consuming. It would have been good to spend more time reviewing some of this.

Simon Cooper

Atrium Underwriters

Suddenly many concepts I have come across in my 13 years of insurance became clear. I especially found the capital modelling extremely useful – even though my actuarial colleagues tried to explain some of the concepts to me, I did not have the full picture.

Jeanette Joubert

Chartis Insurance

I found the course extremely useful. Very clear and practically focused – certainly helped to demystify many actuarial concepts. Thank you Ana!

Very impressed with the course content’s relevance to insurance.

Chris Sandys

Very informative and at good level for experienced underwriters.


Training Testimonials

Loss Distributions, Increased Limits Factors and Exposure Curves

A really practical course which starts with the theory but spends most of the time implementing and learning “how to do it”. Excellent!.


Fabulous course showing practical use of fitting distributions.


Really practical – not like many other actuarial based training. You will really get down to the nitty gritty.

Sally Horrocks


I highly appreciate the contents and the way to explain clearly some sophisticated models. I wish MatBlas a very successful year.

Laurent Berthaut

Munich Re

A thoroughly enjoyable, insightful course; well presented, well organised and very well run. Highly recommended.


Course was very well presented. Enjoyed it thoroughly!! Trainer was very approachable.


An excellent, relevant course, delivered at just the right pace. Plenty of examples and the methods were applied to realistic data sets. I would recommend this course to any actuaries or statisticians working in pricing.


Ana is an experienced industry practitioner and this shows in the way she presents this course. Forget the academic chaff; this is the industry practitioner’s guide to pricing. I strongly recommend it.


Really useful course focussing on the practicalities.


Very practical, very relevant, would definitively recommend to my colleagues. You learn all of this taking the exams, but it’s good to put the theory into practice. This course exceeded my expectations (and I had pretty high expectations to begin with!).
