The Analytical Perspective

Welcome to the inaugural issue of The Analytical Perspective

July 2020

Welcome to the inaugural issue of Oliver Wyman's "Analytical Perspective," a new analytics (and beyond) newsletter from the Actuarial Practice! We have heard feedback from several key leaders in the insurance analytics / actuarial community that there is not a communication tailored to their needs. As a result, our newsletter is custom designed for the insurance analytics / actuarial community. Our newsletter will focus on analytics / actuarial topics, but also on emerging issues in the insurance industry.

We hope you enjoy our inaugural issue!
