Tom Miller recognized the need to write this book a few years ago, after reviewing postings on popular discussion pages frequented by actuaries. He was surprised and troubled by the magnitude of misinformation posted on these websites. Clearly actuaries and actuarial students posting this information are only trying to be helpful to one another, but they frequently lack the necessary experience and expertise to offer sound advice. Tom seeks to provide readers of his career guide with valuable insights regarding

The increasing complexity of insurance and reinsurance products has seen a growing interest amongst actuaries in the modelling of dependent risks. For efficient risk management, actuaries need to be able to answer fundamental questions such as: Is the correlation structure dangerous? And, if yes, to what extent? Therefore tools to quantify, compare, and model the strength of dependence between different risks are vital. Combining coverage of stochastic order and risk measure theories with the basics of risk management and stochastic
