Product Actuary and Actuarial Manager

(FASSA)
M. Sc. (Actuarial Science)

Julie received her Masters degree in Actuarial Science in 1998 from the University of Witwatersrand. After a year’s stint lecturing, she went on to qualify professionally as an actuary whilst working at Old Mutual. She was seconded to Old Mutual UK to help establish the UK Life business, and then returned to manage Retail Risk Product Development for Old Mutual SA. Julie joined Munro Forensic Actuaries in 2012, bringing her product development expertise and professionalism to the actuarial team.

Julie explains the role of an actuary as someone who quantifies the financial impact of risk and, importantly, finds solutions for them. The complex and dynamic nature of risk means that her roles have never lacked diversity, and she is always looking to apply actuarial thinking in her role as a leader.

Outside of her busy work schedule you will find Julie spending time with her husband and two teenage boys, walking on the beach, playing the piano or getting stuck into a good book.
