SDA Team

The SDA Team

Our experienced team is focused on delivering expert actuarial advice that creates value for our clients, and includes a full range of staff, enabling work to be carried out at an appropriate level, ensuring you receive cost effective, quality actuarial services.

It was important for us to work with a consultancy with plenty of experience in the insurance sector and a strong track record of supporting Solvency II implementation. While we spent some time developing our own expertise, using en external resource helped us to identify issues that we may otherwise have overlooked.
