A member of BWCI’s pensions actuarial team has qualified as a Fellow of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries.
Amber Buckingham, who has been with BWCI since 2013, is also the Secretary for the Channel Islands Actuarial Association. She was awarded the BWCI Cup for Further Mathematicians for her success in her 'A' Levels.
Ms Buckingham’s final exam was delayed for several weeks due to corona virus, but her qualification was not delayed as a result.
“My final exam was not how I imagined it would be,” said Ms Buckingham. “I am grateful that the institute and Faculty of Actuaries were able to move the exams online so that I did not have to delay qualification.
“I’m looking forward to continuing to use the knowledge and skills gained throughout my studies within my work at BWCI.”
BWCI Student Study Coordinator Matt Stanbury said that Ms Buckingham sets a great example, and that the actuarial profession is more accessible than some might think.
“This is a fantastic achievement and very well deserved,” said Mr Stanbury. “It underlines that while many of the entrants to the actuarial profession are graduates, it is also equally possible to enter the actuarial profession directly after 'A' Levels.”
