CERA and the challenge to the Risk Profession

Very reassuring article in the Actuary magazine regarding one aspect of the inevitable land grab between risk and actuarial professionals (which I have blogged on several times), this one covering the thoughts of a few CERA students as to whether this qualification was likely to enhance their career prospects.

Judging by the responses of those students likely to be CERA-qualified in the near future, I suspect that the Risk profession will still be gainfully employed for some years to come - particularly liked the reponse about selling the qualification in one sentence "It counts as verifiable CPD!"

PS The score on CRO hires moved to 4-0 to the Actuaries this month with Aviva UK's new guy - however, the hunter has become the hunted, with the new top man at the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries being a chartered accountant!
