As an Actuarial or Investment Analyst, you will find that no two days in the office are the same.

Our aim is for you to develop into a trusted advisor for your clients as soon as possible.

As you progress through your career, you will have access to a menu of training options to supplement your experience and help you develop into a Consultant and Actuary more quickly. Our courses are fully interactive to ensure you get a chance to practice the consulting elements of the topic with your peers.
We want you to be as successful as possible, so we will fully support your study towards professional qualification; This includes providing you with a full range of study and tuition materials designed to support rapid progress through the exams, together with paid study leave to help you work towards the exams more effectively and financial rewards for successful exam sittings.
Actuarial Consulting - Pensions
UK companies presently have over £2 trillion invested in pension schemes, more than the rest of Europe put together. That’s a breathtaking sum, but the question remains whether individual companies have set aside enough to meet their pensions’ obligations 20, 30 or even 40 years down the line. People are living longer than ever before and the recent economic turmoil has demonstrated that those who manage pension schemes cannot always rely on good investment returns to help meet the costs of the benefits promised.
A market leader in actuarial consulting, Aon has been advising companies and trustees on their pension schemes for over sixty years. Our actuarial consultants specialise in advising our clients on those schemes to help them manage the associated financial and operational risks, now and in the future.
As the world leader in Investment Consulting, Aon has been advising employers and governments on their pension schemes and other assets for over 60 years. Today, we provide a wide range of clients with expertise that extends from setting their investment strategies and the day-to-day management of their investment portfolios, through to corporate transactions and transfers of assets from one investment manager to another.
Aon advises clients on a number of strategies that have taken advantage of recent financial market conditions, enabling their employees to enjoy retirement.
To apply for this stream, you must be educated to degree level with a 2:1 or equivalent qualification in a numerate/semi-numerate discipline. Strong commercial awareness, lots of ambition and an enthusiastic approach are also important.
