Be You. With us.

What does it mean to be you with us? Julia’s story

There have certainly been times throughout my career when I’ve noticed being the only woman in meetings or the discrepancy between the number of female and male actuaries. I am impressed with how many more female actuaries we have today than when I started eight years ago.

Be You. With Us.

We’re a bright-thinking, hard-working team focused on growth with purpose. And with large company resources and a small company feel, it means each of us is a name, not a number. Here, every voice matters.
