Hi - I've decided to make the switch from a Big4 actuarial consulting role (in M&A, if this makes a difference) to traditional insurance (leaning towards either life or health, but still open-minded to other areas since I have no experience). Right now, I have 5 exams (going to take my 6th one at the firm I'm currently at), on the ASA track, and have 1.5 years of work experience with limited technical experience (consulting here basically just uses Excel and Alteryx - from time to time).
I'm trying to do my research and learn more about the traditional areas of actuarial roles in insurance with the goal of being able to show my knowledge, curiosity, and interest during interviews down the road. I also want to be informed of the current trends (in life/health insurance mostly) and tools that actuaries are utilizing.
Does anyone have advice on where to start and what sources to read up on?
Thanks in advance! :)
