  • Hey, I saw that you have a bachelor of actuarial studies but want to be a highschool teacher, may I ask why?

    Thanks! Yeah my channel is kinda low key at the moment (I haven't really done much advertising or promotion). I'm hoping over time that it naturally picks up traction as more students discover it's on offer.

    I think actuarial studies is an ok degree to do if you want to get into finance, but certainly not necessary. In hindsight now I wonder whether it would have been better for me to do pure maths. I suppose it depends on whether you want to become a quant. I know both actuarial and math graduates who go on to become quants, but it seems like a PhD in math is becoming the bare minimum to get into that space.

    My observation is that very few actuarial graduates go on to work as actuaries, so a lot of the degree content about insurance and superannuation and provisioning for reserves is kind of a waste of time. But the broad concepts about risk management and statistics are very important.
