Hello Richard, Actuary is a right option to consider if you are good with crunching numbers. You need to have an aptitude for maths & statistics. However before you take a decision to be an actuary or a management professional my personal recommendation to you is that get your psychometric assessment done and know your real aptitude, interests and personality . Otherwise to be an actuary you need to get yourself registered with Actuarial Society of India, Mumbai and pass 15 subjects. On passing all subjects you will attain fellowship and can begin practice as actuary. It is for sure a challenging and financially rewarding career as every insurance company need to have an actuary and are highly paid. As far as scope of this career in countries like us/UK is concerned , there is no dearth of job options for actuaries there. Wishing you all the best for all your future endeavors.
